The raw data are brightness values for the array of pixels.

Brightness is human perception. Measurements are not.

Except that human perception starts with measurement in the retina.

But with spectral sensitivities very different from what a has sensor. Brightness is matched to humans, not to camera sensors.

There is a stream of numbers going through from the photodetector to the print.

They are going through human intellect

The brightness of a patch on the print derives from those numbers.

In many different ways, depending on many design and perception factors. As you can't make a universal formula translating the numbers to the brightness there is really nothing we can do.
