Iridient X-Transformer DNG worms and workflow?

The lack of X-T3 RAW support in Lightroom at the moment led me to try Iridient X-Transformer based on the rave reviews in this forum. Paul Elliott's youtube video provided a simple comparison of Iridient vs Lightroom RAW conversion and how to install the plugin in lightroom. Spoiler alert for new users:  using Iridient in LR is simple and seamless.

I have two questions for existing x-transformer plugin users.

1. after converting a RAW file to DNG using Iridient, will Lightroom still create the same artefacts from the DNG as when using the RAF file, or does the DNG offer full remediation of the issue?

2. as x-transformer Lightroom plugin users can you share workflow your best practices & suggestions. E.g do you bulk convert all RAF to DNG before import or do it in LR? Do you keep or delete RAF files after conversion? For Mac users, have you automated your workflow using Automator or Services?

BTW the panicky threads here in recent days about DR, noise, etc were i.m.o. premature. The RAF / Iridient DNG files coming out of the X-T3 for my needs are awesome.

Thank you in advance for your responses.
