This might seem silly

But, how is the dynamic range preserved in a film scan? For example I can recover quite of bit of highlight detail in my Portra 400 film scans from an Epson v850.

My logic tells me that a scan is collecting reflected light from a negative and then whatever you get from the scan is what you get, like a jpeg. Yet, I can still post process my scanned negs with quite a bit of leeway in highlights and shadow details.
