Dynamic Range (DR400) and Lightroom

Hello!  I have an X-Pro 2 and shoot in RAW+Fine.  My
question is:
If I shoot in say DR 400, and open the RAW file in Lightroom, will Lightroom tone-map to make the resultant image as close as possible to Fuji's internal RAW converter?

In other words, say if I shoot at DR 400, my understanding is that the RAW is actually shot at -2EV and then the shadows are lifted up by internal tone-mapping by the internal converter -- but that the RAW is at -2EV.
Will Lightroom apply a similar tone map, or will it simply take the whole RAW file and add +2EV without taking note of the shadows/highlights?  If it does apply a similar tone map, does it do so by making adjustments to Shadows and Blacks sliders?

Thanks so much!
