A normal Resolve workflow would have you create a prepped final timeline XML for color. That timeline would be one that has all video on layer 1, all multicam clips flattened, all effects removed and all motion effected clips noted so you can re-do the motion effects on the colored clips. Motion effects won't transfer in the XML to Resolve. All audio tracks can be removed from the timeline as well as any graphics layers.

In essence, you're delivering a timeline that has a clear indication of the colorwork to be done. You can media manage your project to collect all of the relevant files but Premiere's media management tool is flaky so I'd recommend that you simply create a mirrored drive of your entire project media and give that to your colorist.

In addition, colorists also appreciate a pro-res version of this clean timeline in case they run into issues with the XML. And lastly, export out a reference version of the finished timeline with source file timecode burn-in as well as master timeline burn-in. Colorists want to easily track every shot in the timeline in case there's a mismatched file on import.

The deliverables from the colorist to you would be your master color files along with an XML. If you're delivering to your colorist 4k RED files you'd be asking for 4k RED files (R3D) back from your colorist. You import back into Premiere the XML that you receive from your colorist and on import that XML timeline will be linked to the color files.
