Yes, the dedicated Nikon software (WIndows only) knows the exact choices
made on the camera at shooting time. The information is stored in the
raw file somehow. After all, each brand uses their own format.

Yes and no.
if you run exif you will find that the setting of the camera "at
shooting time" are accessible. How else would shotwell, darktable and
photoshop be able to read them?

Well, I mean that the camera manufacturer can decide to add new fields
at "build time", change whatever they choose, and support all that in
the supplied software. These new changes will not be supported by open
source software, till they catch up.

As a test, you should try running exif on your RAW files and get to see
what those supposedly "hidden" settings are and how easily found they
are. You might be surprised.

I have, but that was not my meaning.
