Sony RX10/100 HFR cropping

I’ve been looking for a relatively affordable camera with high-speed video capability, and I‘ve settled on either an RX10 IV or more likely the cheaper RX100 VI as these have longer HFR record times than earlier models, as well as marginally higher resolution when recording at 480/960fps. My question stems from these higher-frame rate resolutions.

For example, the RX10 IV records 240fps at 1824x1026, a non-standard 16:9 resolution which is upscaled to 1080p. This makes sense to me. At 480fps, it records at 1824x616, but instead of outputting some weird ultrawide strip of video, you get a lower-quality upscaled 1080p video without any stretching of the image.

Can someone please explain this? Are the pixels somehow containing less detail vertically than horizontally when filming at 480/960fps? I used to have a Casio Exilim EX-ZR300 which could film 240/480/1000fps at sub-480p, and the higher frame rate resolutions were also extra-wide  but this was actually reflected in your video being some extremely weird 40:10 comic strip format.
