Gee, that was a long ride...... This works:

exiftool -ActiveArea="0 0 3280 4944" -DefaultCropOrigin="8 8" -DefaultCropSize="4928 3264" -CroppedImageHeight=3264 -CroppedImageWidth=4928 -CropMode35mm=Off -o "UNcropped.dng" "Cropped.dng"

Note: It doesn't change the jpeg inside.

You mean edit the meta data by hand? Ok, thank-you. Good to know for everyone who needs this.

Personally I think I will work under the assumption that the GR2 does crop the DNG permanently - as it's so much simpler.
