Nikon Z 9 and Nikon itself NEVER supported 24.000 fps, which is what is required for cinema and Netflix masters. Nikon only does 24/1.001. Rejected! This is THE answer.

On the other hand Netflix really requires nowadays BT.2020 outside P3 (since like the end of last year) or P3 JPEG2000 masters, that could be 12 bit RGB, not YCbCr. That is finally simple to do with bayered <Tico>RAW of Nikon Z 9, since it is just RGGB, so simple demosaicing produces RGB 12 or 14 bit (what is it in Nikon Z9, I think 14 after all) that is BT.2020 if you set it so (Davinci sees this metadata too, whether it is BT.709 or BT.2020)!

There is also some issue with stops of dynamic range, I think, worse than even Sony!

Netflix don't require 24.000FPS. I have the FX3 and it doesn't do 24.000 it is Netflix approved

In the Netflix production guide it even says that:

The Sony FX3 recording frame rates are indicated as the closest integer values in camera. The actual
corresponding frame rates are as follows: 24p: 23.98 fps, 30p: 29.97 fps, 60p: 59.94 fps, and 120p: 119.88 fps.
