Those hairs don't look smeared to my eye, just out of focus.

Yes, the hairs on the neck are out of focus, but do not look like normal out of focus hairs to me anyway. On the other hand, the hairs on the chin are in focus and are smeared by the NR that smooths the background. It seems that the algorithms for identifying the NR suited areas needs some improvements.
And look at this other crop:

image looks great, it just doesn't say much about what the camera can
do outside a studio.

Yes, as a whole, the image looks almost acceptable, but you wouldn't believe the amount of detail that some in camera noise reduction algorithms can remove, while keeping the image looking still very good. Only by seeing the same scene without NR (RAW ?) you can make an idea about what is missing.
