On my DSLR doing the same with .jpg and yes the sky nearly always

I simply don't understand this. I have no trouble getting sky and
foreground correctly exposed together except on featureless overcast
days. Do you have different sky where you are?

You have trouble with exposure on overcast days?

Only to the extent of getting detail in the sky while the foreground looks right without doing any PP. The detail is still there and can be successfully printed with post processing. No more than you would have to do with film to get it onto paper.
