Does anyone know if the PT setting does anything special to skin tones that the other settings don't?

I've always wondered if two settings would produce identical results if they overlapped on the grid view. For example, in PT I can set saturation to +1 and contrast to +3, and in NL I can set saturation to +1 and contrast to +2. With those settings, N and P overlap on the grid. Does this mean that both settings produce identical results,

Yes it does.

My preferred setting is now Standard with plus 1 to both Contrast and Sharpening. This gives a closer image quality to Vivid but without oversaturating skin tones and without blowing out reds.
