By saturation I think you mean clipped to those ranges?

Well, as is often the case with this manual, I was interpreting based on
poorly written information. By "final calculation result is limited
according to the SAT_MODE parameter" I interpreted that to mean the
hardware enables scaling from full range to limited range. But I concede
that it more likely means it clips the output to those ranges.

Well, we have already rounded the coefficients to the nearest int in the
tables. Do you mean the final result (coeff * color component + offset)
is rounded?

Makes sense, I will turn on that bit for limited range YUV output for
v5, so that the final color component result is clipped to limited range
and rounded.
