The direct answer is no; I have not taken the care to take test shots to see the effect. However, my default menu settings for both Highlight Tone and Shadow Tone are "M-Soft." I am not certain that "Soft" means more detail -- where did you get that information?

It looks to be the case in the X-M1 review, but not on the dynamic range page as you would expect, rather on the Features page:

The picture of the neon yellow escalator, in Soft (-2) setting, looks very similar to the escalator picture in their X-M1 samples gallery that was converted with ACR to recover highlights.

As you can see there is also Soft (-2) for shadows.
