Import and export 10 bit (prores) in PP CC - issues

I am seeing a lot of information online about 10bit workflow in Premiere Pro, yet there's an issue with import/export or waveform monitor I cannot quite understand.
When I upload a prores 4444xq file and check the lumetri scopes I am seeing banding
I basically tried to use PP to convert a bunch of 16-bit TIFFs into 10bit prores to make a more workable file. So this file (waveform of which you see) was exported from PP CC, at export I specified "Maximum depth", chose 64 bit, no gamma correction, and maximum render quality.
When I loaded the original 16 TIFF sequence I saw a beautiful smooth waveform without any hints of bands.
I also repeated the process in Adobe AE, adjusted all settings to 10bit in import and export (even tried trillions of colours), yet the result was the same.
Interestingly, I am not seeing banding in Prores 422 exported from either DaVinci or PP.
Anyone has had similar issues? Does Premiere have some problems with 4444xq?
