That's the result of their raw compression algorithm. They don't appear in their uncompressed raws.

I have rarely seen such classic examples of the delta mod artifacts in craw.

You mean in general shooting? It's pretty common on high-contrast edges of exposure pushes like the lettering in that DR crop.

Related article I've found:

If this is a consequence of the 11 +7 compression (and it does appear to be a compression artifact of some sort), I'd be interested to see either uncompressed or lossless compressed as well--though I think Sony only does uncompressed or lossy compression.

I personally shoot most often in 14-bit lossless compressed. I think this and similar options are another consideration when evaluating cameras.

During the compression battles before Sony introduced uncompressed, I said that if they did that, it would be malicious obedience. To this day they have made no promises about the future availability of lossless compression. It's a shame.
