Yes, it seems you arrived at your conclusion that ETTR is based on faulty logic through some faulty logic of your own

Quite possibly true. I blunder often. I've blundered through well over 50 years of photography and God willing I'll continue to blunder for a few more.

The proof best shows up when comparing two photographs of the same scene with dominant shadow (low-contrast) regions, one taken normally and one ETTR. If done properly, the noise in the shadow regions will be minimized in the ETTR version, and it does show.

No. It doesn't. As a general rule for shooting the only thing ETTR does is overexpose. Sorry. The proof as they say is in the pudding and as yet there's been none to show.

Than you haven't looked

Anyway, as mentioned, I did not intend to discuss the merits of ETTR. In fact I am asking for experience with what could be considered ETTL.
