As an absolute novice in this realm, is this a good place to look for calibration settings as more folks buy their set?

Yeah, I’m sure someone will post some actual calibration stuff eventually. I’d give it time though, considering these sets are just trickling out now.
So I popped in various discs last night and fired up a couple of games and honestly, I can’t really say there’s much negative to say about the 65”. The 90 zones do seem to help mitigate any major blooming problems, and again, uniformity is quite good. As mentioned before, there is definitely some minor clouding with the screen is pitch black but anything else on the screen seems to make it disappear. I wouldn’t notice this if I had even a little ambient light in the man cave though so I find it completely acceptable. I have seen much, much worse.
It’s funny. I went through to Sony Z9F’s and two Sony 900F’s and they all had some issue I couldn’t live with. Light bleed, gray spots, spots that were too bright, etc. I decided to go for Vizio again since my 2016 M was quite nice, and was tempted because the 65” for $899 seemed like a steal, especially with the improvements. I can’t believe how much better this TV is in the quality control department compared to those higher priced Sony sets. I think I’ll stick with them for now on.
I do have an LG C8 OLED as well but Im probably just going to hang it in the living room now. Im just and LCD kind of guy, what can I say?
