If I process an image with 16-bit color coding and change to 8-bits, keeping the color space the same, I do not lose DR.

You are confusing range and dynamic range . The dynamic range is the ratio of the range and the resolution. You are right that you don't change the range in going from 16 bits to 8, but you change the dynamic range from 65,536 values to 256 values.
