Standard Color Matrix vs Enhanced

I always wondered why some raw files use a standard matrix while others have an enhanced option available. For example, my Canon 5D Mark III offers an enhanced option, but the 6D Mark II only has the standard color matrix. I’d love to know why. It seems that the enhanced versions provide more dynamic range in all channels.

hello, welcome to the community!

from darktable 4.6 user manual - input color profile :

The enhanced matrices are designed to provide a look that is closer to that of the camera manufacturer.
