The general rule, though of course there are exceptions and it's not quite this simple and as you say we're ignoring steering/suspension changes:

Dynamic/Auto/Comfort in terms of engine/gearbox is largely about throttle response.
Sport/Drive (S/D) is about shift points.

So yes there's a difference depending how you combine them, but it's not extreme. The Dynamic/Auto/Comfort options (for engine/gearbox) are pretty mild in my experience so become a little difficult to notice when in S.

Hope that clears it up.

Thank you, Eamonn. It all makes sense.

Is there an element of "adaptive learning" in the Dynamic D or S modes?

I am not sure how objective my observations are but it does feel to me that the car sometimes responds differently to the same throttle position.

Can't figure out what it depends upon, maybe on how aggressively I kick down, maybe on how long I was on cruising and letting the predictive ACC to take care of all accelerations and decelerations.

There are definitely some weird things gong on. My kickdowns in S+D sometimes result in scary accelerations and sometimes the car is just fast enough (as like being in Comfort mode).
