How do I processing RAW images in the same way my camera processes JPEGs?

Of course, if you lift the shadows you get a different picture. But as OP stated, he wanted something as close as possible to the original proseccing in camera as possible, so that was what I gave him. ( As far as default in DXO gives that...)

Sure, but I was simply comparing my PL5 defaults with your image that used DxO's original defaults. I didn't explicitly lift the shadows, it's just what my preset does by default. Neither image replicates what the camera produced, and nor should you expect it to. I certainly aim to produce better images than OOC JPEGs, and almost always tweak the settings after my defaults have been applied, as I did here. Depending on whether I wanted the people to be seen, I would tweak it differently.

This is an illustration of how raw development isn't just an automatic conversion process, but one where you modify the appearance of the exported images, depending on what you want them to look like.

Mostly I believe we agree.

Usually I try a lot of different settings to get my RAW files to develop into something I want. Occasionally even some of the FP filmatic looks to give the photo the mode I want.
