If I apply BW 11 or 12, and push up exposure, I cannot reach max white!  I can only get there if I reduce amount to 0.  Same with blacks.  Is that intentional?

This is intentional.  These profiles deliberately lower the maximum achievable white point, and raises the achievable black point, so it has a "muted" look.

Would be good to rename them to a more intuitive name (like "muted" ) so the user then understands what the idea means instead of just 1, 2, 3 etc.
