iPhone ProRaw issue with HDR

This weekend I took some time to really play with the newer HDR features that were released earlier this month. I'm getting a decent grasp on them, and the potential is very exciting. This is a feature I've been wanting for quite some time. I am running into one small issue, and was curious if anyone had any insight into it. 


For what it is worth, I turned the toggle on to always edit photos in HDR if they have the HDR data in the file.


When I take a standard photo in iOS and edit it in Lightroom it goes into HDR mode, and looks very similar to the Photos app as a starting point. Exactly as I expect.


When I take in a ProRaw file, HDR mode is not automatically enabled, leading me to believe its not getting the HDR data. Yet when I view the ProRaw in Apple Photos the display clearly kicks into HDR mode more or less identical to how a HEIC capture looks. I can edit it to look more like the photo looks in Apple Photos, but I'd like my starting point to look like what I am seeing in the photos app.


I've tested this on iOS, iPadOS, and MacOS with similar results. 


Anyone have any insight to this, and why it may be occuring? Am I missing something, or is it simply that Adobe just hasn't implimented it yet?
