EOS R Color and Skintone. Testchart results puzzling

So after looking at the latest DPR testchart I am quite puzzled about the result. The question as to whether the R has a different output than 5D4 has been answered for sure.

But I was not expecting this huge difference. What strikes me the most is the massive change in the skintones. DPR makes a special comment about this - especially yellows have been skewed to the green side. But from what I have seen so far, the skintones in real life are really good. But on this testimage they look down right awful. Like an old Nikon or Sony... if that. God knows but it sure does not look like a Canon. I threw the original 5D in there as a reference.

Something feels very strange. What do you think? I normally don't judge any color response based on a testchart like this, but since the difference is so huge it makes me wonder.

Does anyone know which profile they use when in JPEG comparison mode?
