The only way DNG can be made lossless is by embedding the entire original raw file.

That wouldn't make much sense.

Yet Adobe made it possible, it's an option of the DNG converter.

The DNG rendition will still be slightly different

The difference, if any, is limited to the interpretation of the color profile

Lossless means no difference. The conversion to DNG is not reversible, if you want to revert to the original you need to keep it, either separately or embedded in the DNG.
