DNG is not raw.

Why yes, yes it is. I'd point you to the first page of the DNG Wikipedia article, and I've copied the first paragraph here:

Digital Negative(DNG) is an open lossless raw image format written by Adobe used for digital photography. It was launched on September 27, 2004.[1] The launch was accompanied by the first version of the DNG specification,[2] plus various products, including a free-of-charge DNG converter utility. All Adobe photo manipulation software (such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom) released since the launch supports DNG.[3]

In fact, many cameras include DNG as their RAW format. I believe both Pentax and Leica do so.
