I've just seen the same results in Silkypix. But back to LR4.4. Here are exported JPEGs from two RAW files - one at DR100 and one at DR400. Ihe original OOC RAWs looked more or less the same. The window was completely white with virtually no detail. In both cases I then pulled back exposure by -2EV and the highlights slider to -100%. You will see that detail then appeared in the DR400 window, but not the DR100 one. At DR200, the result was in between, but closer to DR400.

So it would seems DR200/DR400 is writing highlight protection to the RAW files, but you have to pull it out.
