L and M both use two stored halves and can use DR 100, that's why the EXIF of even L sized images lists the M size (half sensor size x 2 frames) resolution. There has to be an indication in the raw file that tells the raw converter whether the shot was meant to be L or M and develop accordingly. The source data is the same anyway, while the development is different (EXR HR demosaicing vs. SN blending + Bayer demosaicing).
