A camera with high dynamic range will not produce pictures that look like poorly done HDR at the default settings.

Both the camera's JPEG engine and raw processors will try to generate the best possible looking results, not use all the available dynamic range. So in good light images from a camera with very high dynamic range will start with about the same levels of contrast as cameras with low DR without any additional post processing.

So are you saying that sometimes not using all the available dynamic range produces 'better' looking image?

Exactly!
