Oh, I did not know that. The whole naming of DR expansion is a bit misleading. In the end there is nothing expanded, it is just shifting the spectrum of the available DR to the darker zones. Total DR remaining the same.

Wrong. DR is expanded with DR200 and DR400. You retain highlights, while recovering details from the shadows. JPEGs see the biggest benefit. RAW shooters can basically just expose for highlights and recover the shadows themselves.
