Hi, when I convert a photo from RAW to DNG format, spot removal will create these weird artifacts for me. Does anyone have experience with this, please?

It's apparently a known problem:  https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic/spot-removals-become-pink-squares-once-raw-converted-to-lossy-dng/m-p/11714043#M218569  One workaround may be to simply not convert to DNG, which AFAICT helps with: this particular problem the broader efficiency of changing external XMP metadata being isolated to small sidecar files only

I'm doing this for file shrinking and archiving. But this is a big mistake.
