Leica R 19mm f/2.8 V.2 Built in filters: ND x1 = no filter? Or is it an actually ND.

Hey everyone, I just purchased the Leica R 19mm f/2.8 V.2 and I'm super impressed by it! I just had a quick question regarding the built in filters.

Is it 3 color filters (KB 12, Or, and YG) and the ND x1 setting means there is no filter present?

Or is it actually 4 filters and ND x1 is an actual ND filter? Since there isn't a "No Filter" setting, I can't tell what the original base look of the lens might be.

In which case, the permanent presence of ND seems like kind of a handicap in certain situations where you might want the most light available to the lens.

Thanks!
