I'm experiencing the exact opposite of this!

The HDR video looks ok in windowed mode ( no full-screen at all) and in FSW.
In full-screen exclusive, it is much MUCH darker to the point of being unwatchable.

This matter is made worse by the fact that I cannot get MadVR to stay in FSW mode - after a few seconds delay, it always switches to FSE (not matter what full-screen options are set/unset)
