With color spaces, you can very easily conduct an experiment to see this phenomena with your own eyes.

(1) Shoot a JPEG in sRGB and lean hard on the hue slider of your choice in Lightroom or Photoshop. For example, push green tones into yellow. Output.

(2) Shoot RAW and lean equally hard on the same hue slider in ACR. Output as an sRGB JPEG.

(3) Compare your two JPEGs. Even though they're both now 8-bit sRGB JPEGs, I guarantee (2) will have smoother gradations and, overall, will appear a much more convincing edit.

While that experiment should indeed show smoother gradations, it is not really an experiment in colour spaces as you seem to be inferring.
