I'd like to leave the dynamic range set at auto and let the camera figure it out, but for some reason, that isn't reliable. I notice if I shoot a scene at 100% than switch to auto, sometimes it stays at 100%, however, if I switch to 400%, take a pic, then go back to auto, it then chooses 400%. Might be some kind of firmware bug, or maybe it is trying to "learn" from how the operator wants to expose pictures.

True. And there are lots of photos taken with EXR cameras that don't use the overload capabilites of the sensor because they are being set wrongly:
