Just in case this is the cause of the misunderstanding: one of the most confusing things about how Samsung have implemented the HDR settings is that they "swap" with SDR, but they don't change the name of the Picture Settings.
So you have, using the modes for which this works:
the HDR+ "special Viewing mode".
Each of the presets I have listed above actually store two completely separate sets of numbers. So you effectively have
Movie (with HDR settings)
Movie (with SDR settings)
Standard (with HDR settings)
Standard (with SDR settings)
HDR+ "special Viewing mode" (with HDR settings)
HDR+ "special Viewing mode" (with SDR settings)
So they store 6 complete sets of values not 3.
When you are in "Movie" mode, you can check whether the incoming signal is HDR by pressing Info and checking for [HDR] on the onscreen display, or - see if it's switched its settings from the "SDR" set, with a low backlight, to the "HDR" set, with a high backlight.
Other manufacturers don't do this - they force you to dedicate one picture mode to SDR, and another to HDR. So even though it's confusing at first, I think it's better than what we might have got.
Samsung doesn't make it at all clear that this is happening. You have to realise it's storing two sets, and adjust each one at the right time (ie play HDR content to make it switch).
So back on topic, the WB settings for Movie-HDR would/could be different to those for Movie-SDR. If you have one set of values, and someone's told you them, you haven't automatically got the other set as well if they didn't tell you
It's probably not the cause of the misunderstanding here, but I thought it worth posting in case.
