FCP X and PPro - Same footage, differing color.

Folks, I cut a first pass of a project in FCP X 10.4.8. Then I rebuilt it in Premiere Pro (v 14.0.3). What caught my attention was that the footage looked very different. FCP X was brighter with less shadow. PPro's displaying of the video is significantly darker and more saturated in color.

As far as I can tell and checked:
-Sequence settings are the same,
-Color space is the same (Rec. 709)
-Playback settings are both at full quality
-I tried changing editing modes in PPro as a test, but that changed nothing.
-I am using the same monitor on the same macOS (Catalina)
-Toggled the Display Color Management in PPro which changed nothing
-There are no color or any other effects on the video clip.

I am curious if any of you have any insight on this. I don't know a lot about macOS color management if if that's having any impact on the differences.
