Nope definitely not. That is the original one before  started to push
the exposure in the app.

Maybe I am misunderstanding something here. Exposure in camera oder
pushing later on in linear mode?

When I got close to overexposure on the white patch in profiled mode
with the stock profile and then switched over to linear to generate the
calibration TIFF, I still had a profile that resulted in in blown patches.
