The Nikon Z cameras are unusual in several ways.
Unlike most (probably any) cameras, they write camera settings to XMP in raw files, that will be read and honored by Camera raw and Lightroom. So settings like for instance sharpening, saturation and Active D-lighting (lifting shadows) will be automatically applied. With other cameras, these settings would only be visible in jpgs.
I know some people consider this to be a good thing, but I don't, so I've disabled it by creating new default settings for my Z7, with all sliders set to default/zero.
The built-in lens profiles aren't so unusual, my Fuji GFX 50S has them as well (no option to turn them off in Lightroom), and there may be other cameras that use them too.
