The difference is only in heavily pushed shadows at lower ISOs.

The difference is actually more noticeable (when it is noticeable) with regard to highlight tones the can be captured in 14-bit but not 12. Even more rare to see the dif with shadow detail tones

Actually your claim makes no sense.  Areas of highlights and anything above the mid-tones  use a majority of the bits and the lower bits have no noticeable effect.   I would be interested in you being able to give an explanation or examples to justify your claim.
