Hard to say, 35 film has a huge latitude for overexposure compared to digital. So someone could expose for the shadows and "stretch" out 13+ stops with a little loss in quality. Where as a proper exposure might only span 8-9 stops keeping much of the IQ. With digital you generally dont want to push the highlights that far, but a similar technique seems to be taking place in the shadows pulling.

Negative film, maybe, but it's debatable.  K25 certainly did not have that much latitude.  True, its lack was in the shadows, not the highlights, but there was little more than 4 stops available to the user.
