Hang on a minute, why are you calling this an "issue"? Please explain first why would you ever want to change this option away from that correct state and degrade the picture?
Setting "Original" with Just Scan "on" is the best, purest, most correct option - that's a fact not an opinion. Sometimes "16:9" zooms, sometimes it doesn't. But "Original" never zooms.
One of my bugbears is that the many manufacturer's TV's defaults are Just scan auto/off, which means every pixel is being scaled and the picture is being made worse - and the bugbear is that many ordinary users do not realise, they are not techy geeks like us here, and they are needlessly having a worse picture.
Having the best default, and locking it, is a very very good thing and not "one more reason to avoid internal apps" (that
part is my opinion!)
I just like to get all of the detail zoomed back as far as possible
so you should be delighted to get a 1:1 pixel match with what you are supposed to get?
, I've also checked this, easy to do with test slides. Setting "Original" with Just Scan "on" is the only setting which guarantees no zooming or processing. We should be rejoicing that one app has got it right, and helps users to get the best experience by default! If it had been locked to the wrong setting we'd be rightly up in arms, but it's correct. This is not
an "issue" with the internal app, it's a perk

No, you are correct. All good! There are two settings to check and set properly. "original" is set, and "Just Scan" is "on" and not "auto" or "off". If either is wrong, you could get zooming.
EDIT: there's another facet to this which may help. Certain options are greyed out when they are "not applicable", rather than being specifically set to what they are displayed as. So don't worry too much about what word is displayed if it's greyed, because sometimes it's not doing what it says it's doing.
- Picture Options / Black Level (RGB) = High or Low. This is greyed out when the TV is receiving a non-RGB signal. It doesn't mean it's set at high or low. It just means "nothing I can do here".
- Picture Options / Real Cinema. This is greyed out when the TV cannot do the processing that Real Cinema does, eg when the frame-rate is neither 24 nor 60. Again, if it's greyed out and "On" it doesn't mean it's doing the processing and has locked you out from changing it.
I expect the case is with the internal apps that they are delivering their content to the screen at points in the pipeline past where these options normally would do their processing. Eg (this is just an example to make the point, I'm not saying it works like this) if the zooming options can only process the signals from the HDMI inputs, they would always be greyed from the apps. They'd get support calls (not from me, I'd like this, but I bet they have canvassed users) if they put "n/a" there instead and greyed it, or left gaps.
