The "detail contrast" (no such a term)

Then let us call it "Contrast between nearby details". Not to confuse with resolution which works on a much smaller scale. A lens can have high resolution but still lack contrast between nearby details.

you speak of is due to a sharper lens, besides sensor quality. That said, one can do a mid tone contrast adjustment without affecting highs and lows. A very sharp lens with lower contrast can have its contrast increased in software and you will see what you are looking for.

If you do a mid tone contrast adjustment, it will affect the overall contrast, not just the contrast between nearby details.

So if people refer to the contrast between nearby details when they talk about the contrast of a lens, you can't easily reproduce that property of the lens in PP.
