I could be wrong here, but I think Dolby personally recommends going with 'Dolby Dark' for the most accurate setting, which I believe sets the OLED light at 50.

No, I'm not saying that at all. As good as Dolby Vision has looked on both Netflix and Vudu, they're still streaming services that end up compressing the video quality compared to actual UHD Blu-Ray discs.
However, even through that compression, colors and lighting not only look noticeably better than their HDR10 counterparts, they also look more accurate.
To put it very simply, if these films that have DV on Vudu were released on Blu-Ray discs right now, then they would look even better
. Which is pretty insane.
As another user pointed out, one of the shortcomings of streaming DV content on Vudu is in dark scenes you can notice a lot of compression artifacts, the image doesn't get as bright as it would on a disc due to the compression, and the blacks flicker.

But planet Earth II still isn't the revelation people make it out to be. Close-up shots and colors pop, but there are still noise and artifacts in abundance. Whether or not that has to due with the transfer or the equipment used to film is beyond me, but I wouldn't be using that disc as a demo to blow people away.
I'd still go to 'The Martian', 'Pacific Rim', and 'The Revenant' for physical UHD/HDR discs.
'Pacific Rim' is an especially good one for showing off HDR in darker scenes. On the standard Blu-Ray on standard 1080p displays, which the film itself still looks great on standard Blu-Ray, there's still noticeabley more detail in the robots and monsters during the Hong Kong sequence on the UHD Blu-Ray due to the HDR. That's a really good demo reel for selling people on HDR.
Another surprisingly good title for showing off clarity and action in darker environments is 'Patriots Day'. The amount of detail you can make out during the neighborhood shootout is pretty remarkable.
