Optimal 4k MP4 export settings

Possible to ask what are the optimal 4K output / render settings in DaVinci (15) ... without going down the rabbit hole of infinite debate about transcoding with Handbrake or ffmpeg, esoteric discussions of exporting DNxHD vs. DNxHR, and on and on
I'm not producing the next Avatar movie. Just looking for a straight-forward answer to the question: what are the optimal 4K output settings out of DR15 into MP4.

What is the destination? YouTube? Vimeo? Different sites have different requirements.
For me, if it's just a file for clients to take a look at, I upload a ProRes 422LT to Frame.io and I let the site transcode it over a period of time. It's possible to download the LT directly if that's what they want to see.
