Exactly the same as all the 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 TVs. They have a true 10bit panel. They will accept inputs of 8bit, 10bit and 12bit. Obviously 12bits won't be displayed as 12bits because it's a 10bit panel, but depending on the TV's processing engine, it can look better than 10bit at the same resolution. This is one of many, many reasons why the people who say "there's no point having Dolby Vision because it's 12bit and no-one yet has a 12bit panel" are wrong.

I have some inputs and sub settings showing those 3 settings available, is the reason I am asking.
You're welcome, it should copy everything over in the top "Picture Mode" settings menu. Things in the sub-menus like "Noise Reduction" etc aren't copied.
The TV only has 5 SDR LUT slots (allocated for Cinema, Game, technicolor Expert, ISF Expert (Bright Room), ISF Expert (Dark Room)). Then the 3 HDR slots and the 3 dolby vision slots. These LUT slots are shared across all sources and inputs, regardless of what the menus say
so rightly says, there is a bug and sometimes the White Balance etc which should be locked out appears to be adjustable. If you switch sources/modes a few times it should be locked again.

Very good advice. It's in General and called "Quick Start+". HTH
