Wouldn't any post exposure adjustment cause loss of some color information? So when you 'boost' a color you are 'stretching' it and the software needs to interpolate and fill in the gaps so then there would be a chance of color banding. Right?

No, Sensors and PP have come quite far.

Also note... advances by the likes of Topaz and Nik software really have made color enhancing filters less effective than doing it digitally
