My "two bits worth" - 🙂

It is helpful to understand that DNG files are not solely "Presets"in their own right.

DNG files are Digital Negative files designed for 'Photos'

The useful function is that DNG files can also store editing information in the metadata along with the photo data.

So a DNG "Preset" is a  PHOTO + EDIT SETTINGS.

Lightroom can 'read' the Edit Settings in a DNG photo file and then a Preset (that applies the Settings) can be 'saved' for use on other photos.

The link by @GoldingD  describes the method well.
