ND Filter: In several cases you accidentally selected the "max aperture" which actually uses an internal ND Filter. This will block light which can noise/motion blue (and indirectly noise reduction). I'm a bit horrified that Olympus put their ND filter on as an AP option...and max aperture a that. This should have been designed differently.

For any given ISO value, it doesn't matter if the ND filter is used or not used. It won't change the noise characteristics, at least until reaching long exposures times.

Designed differently? Almost every small sensor camera uses a ND filter, but it's usually not mentioned in the specs. If you don't understand why, do a little research on diffraction.

Noise Reduction: I can't tell from your images what you set it at, but for my TG-6 outdoor shoots, Noise Filter > Standard is too smudged...while Noise > Filter Off is too grainy. I do like Noise Filter > Low though. PP denoising for some is of course a better option.

Based on the EXIF, the OP may have shot in RAW. Even if they weren't, they were adjusted in LR to their preference. These don't have the appearance of SOOC JPEGs.
