Normally you should have the colorist render the source files with handles at source resolution. Usually a couple of seconds of handles on either end of the clip and in the codec that works for you. Either ProRes HQ or 4444 or a high-quality DNxHR.

Resolve has a Premiere XML output preset, so the colorist would include an XML that will match back into Premiere. There will often be mismatches with effects like speed ramps. Make sure that you prep a sequence for the colorist that flattens everything to V1, removes all effects and graphics, and has no audio or only a mixdown track for reference. Make sure to replace all nests with source video before sending. Typically all speed ramp effects are best to put at the end, in the full length that you need for the effect.

When you get the rendered clips and the XML back, bring the XML into Premiere and make sure it matches your "send to colorist" sequence. Then use this sequence to replace the video in your "hero" sequence, re-apply effects (not lumetri), resizing, and graphics as needed. Export your deliverables.

This may be more time-consuming, but it's the best way to make sure everything is correct. Note that this allows you to cut in 1080, but finish and deliver in 4K, for example.
