I found out that banding is worse if you use 12-bit raw, especially with lossy compression.  http://betterfamilyphotos.blogspot.com/2013/04/minimizing-nikon-d5200-and-d7100.html

That is at least something.

While trying the different settings I downloaded samples from DPReview and Imaging Resource and one thing I really don't understand is that I cannot see any banding whatsoever at any ISO, even when pushed 5 stops. (????)

Not enough underexposure in any part of the scene in DPR studio shots. In imaging resource's look for that studio scene (in the black box down center):
