I have done some research in 4K and found out this: even though some films / TV shows are in 4K that does not make them HDR. The only ones that are HDR I found are the ones that have it printed on the cover like "Fantastic Beasts and where to find them" and J.J. Abrams "Star Trek Films" as an example. So, how will we know which is and which isn't HDR?

This I think needs to be address in the rules.

Not all have HDR on the front cover. Some have HDR mentioned on the back cover.

My TV tells me when it's receiving HDR content. If the packaging doesn't say, don't know how one would tell otherwise.

That would be the definitive test, as is done now with other tech specs where the sleeve and actual contents are found to differ or not be listed.  Even if the display is not HDR capable, maybe the player will still report the specs?
HDR10 seems to be the norm thus far though, at least I've not acquired nor seen a review yet of a feature film title without it (or the more recent DV.)  Is there a list somewhere that has known SDR titles documented? I'd guess that video sourced programs would be the likely candidates, e.g. documentaries, TV, and direct to video material...

The TV doesn't get in to that detail...it just says "HDR". Perhaps the Xbox, which is what I'm using as a player, has a way to look at disk specs. If I get a chance, I'll throw one in tonight and see.

They have included an optin in "features & Format" to choose if the Disc has HDR10 or Dolby Vision. If the disc does not have any of them, none has to be selected.

As to TVs stating on the screen what type of HDR it is, they normally only shows HDR, if the souce is HDR or HDR10 not what type of HDR it is.
Or Show Dolby Vision, if the TV supports This.
All though HDR on broadcast material is different, and the TV should show HDR-HLG

My Vizio M70-D3 display does indicate either HDR10 or Dolby Vision via its on screen display based on the material being played. I assume other displays which support Dolby Vision do the same.

If there's no indication of which flavour of HDR it is, you can rest assured it's HDR10, as that is required on all HDR discs.

Dolby Vision is always an "extra" and will always be listed as such, while HLG is a standard developed specifically for broadcasts. AFAIK there are no discs with HDR10+ or the Technicolor HDR variant as of yet.
