Brother I wish it was the case. Having followed the c7 since release on AVS forums the dim hdr game mode has always been a real thing since after 03.51 firmware. I have also tested this myself on various games using in game calibration and on the latest firmware even cranking up brightness hdr settings sometimes does not reach mid-settings on stock firmware.That's probably placebo, as 2017 models always had the "dim" HDR Game profile to begin with.
Only on 2016 models they "dimmed" the stock HDR Game (based on HDR Standard) to the 2017 models (based on HDR Cinema, but without Active HDR), but LG already rolled back to 2016 stock one after criticism, so no need to downgrade also there.
