D850 Photographic Dynamic Range and raw size

There are some interesting new results at photonstophotos regarding PDR and different raw sizes:

http://www.photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR_D850.htm#Nikon%20D850(14)

I am not sure what I am seeing but it looks like medium raw has better PDR than full raw which I find a little confusing. Are these results looking at normalised results? If so I find it a bit counterintuitive that the smaller file would be better - I would have expected same as as a best case.

Also it presently does not seem possible to compare these results with other cameras.

Bill, perhaps you could elaborate a bit.

i thank you for your generous contribution to our community and hope that you could clarify.
