I have this model. Date of production (and panel code etc) is simply not on the box unfortunately. The only thing on the box is a small label which has the model and the serial number - the "made in Slovakia" label.

Excellent point. It certainly switches between rec.709 and rec.2020 and switches from Gamma to PQ curves as you say, even if it doesn't switch profiles.
Yes, at launch only Movie mode supported HDR.
Later, Standard was added with two profiles.
Later still, Game was added - but when it was, it didn't have two profiles. This was a curve-ball that none of us saw coming and there's been no word as to why.

It is strange that it has been quite so long for Samsung to implement this, so I'm worried that Game Mode simply isn't capable of holding two profiles or Samsung have too many other more important things to attend to before fixing this. Unfortunately we have zero visibility on what they are working on or what each update actually contains.....
