Yep, it's noise reduction.

I confess, I haven't read this whole thing, and have never used an RX100 but ...

this is exactly what i was thinking as I read the OP. What he is describing it Noise REDUCTION, not NOISE. He is talking about the smearing of details that many digital cameras apply liberally. If he hasn't tried shooting RAW to compare the results, he should.

That said, It's rare that you need to use a picture at native resolution, i.e., pixel peeping. Unless you are printing poster size and viewing close up, it is very often not an issue. OP didn't say what size he prints at, so maybe his walls are filled with 24" x 36" prints and it is a bigger issue for him.
