... Would you say adjusting the highlights or shadows is comparable to adjusting EV lower? ...

Not really. See Labe's post below on his experiences using the "Panasonic" in-camera
"HIGHLIGHTS AND SHADOWS", as have not used.

EV / EC adjustments affects the lighting adjustment(s) to the same amount to the entire image. Whereas with "HIGHLIGHTS AND SHADOWS" the highlight setting (should) only adjust the highlight areas of the image; likewise the shadows setting (should) only affect the shadows areas of the image only.

...  unless you are shooting clouds is this even something that I should think about? ...

You should think about it when looking at any scene when the highlights are brighter and/ or the shadows are darker than the 'overall scene lighting' and using Evaluated Metering.

You need to remember the camera's sensor has a far less dynamic range (highlights/ shadows) than your eyes.

Hence why in your pics with light colored birds that were overexposed in the light, they've recommended using center-weighted or spot metering.
