My understanding is that DR is not useful for anyone shooting RAW, so just switch it off.

I have set shooting modes C1 with Max ISO=800 and C2 Max ISO=6400, then I set shutter speed manually, so I can force the camera to pretty much do what I want easily.

I think that's true provided you deliberately expose the image for highlights (underexposing the rest).  This is precisely what the camera does for you with expanded DR settings followed by the JPEG engine lifting the non-highlight areas of the image when it creates the JPEG.
