Low DXOmark score for Z7?

I am a little hesitant in making a post here as OPs often come under personal attacks when simply trying to solicit opinions/information, but here goes:

I was looking at the DXOmark scores for what they call "Sports (low light) for the Zs and the A7s.  Here is what is listed (850 also thrown in):

A7III             3730

A7RIII          3523

Z6                3299

Z7                2668

850              2660

I am aware many view DXOmark with skepticism and just what do these numbers measure/mean anyway?  But beyond that, they are supposedly using some sort of standardized testing protocols.  I freely admit I don't know much about DXOmark and their methods.

So why is the Z7 (and 850 - same sensor) rated so poorly in this category.  Is it somewhat limited in low light?  I ask this s I am interested in both the 40+MP sensor for landscape, but also want something that will also perform well for astro.

Thanks - now I better duck
