Noisy NEF Import Into LR Classic

Why are my D810 NEF imports are speckled with Luminescence Noise? My ISO was below 800 and under bright sunny conditions. It was an aerial shoot at 1100 above see level.

I'm doing direct import as COPY into LR Classic. Should I be converting to DNG? Should Active D-Lighting be OFF?

The same files in C1 Pro 12 have much less noise for comparison.

My D810 settings were:

Shutter: ~1/1000s, Aperture: f/5.6 - f/10

Auto-ISO: 800, Active D-Lighting: Normal
