When the LEDs are banked the banked LEDs are controlled by the bank registers not the LEDx registers
so you should only see 3 color adjustments on the banked LEDs.

No. Independent LED modules are enabled by default. You have to explicitly enable the banks.

No it is the opposite. When the bit is enabled LED banking is enabled and the BANK brightness and color registers over
ride the LEDx color and brightness registers.

Default is independent control of the RGB via the LEDx color and brightness registers.

Hmm. I guess I will put that on hold until you read the responses. I am not sure that would work or
that would be really clean. I still believe that mapping led-sources to the LEDx module number is the cleanest
simplest solution since the driver cannot inter mix different outputs for enablement.

Should I add that to the DT binding or reference the data sheet table since this driver will support 4 different devices
with varying number of outputs from 18-36.
