No man, it's absolutely not working correctly yet. The overlay being washed out is expected, as the game launches in HDR output. You'll see what I mean if you simply toggle DLSS in game. The colors get washed out and loose the contrast as if it's just SDR being pushed over when you enable DLSS.
It's not as broken as before, but it's still 100% broken because it isn't HDR.
Had a few extra minutes to spare so I did some more testing. Thanks for speaking up. You're right but it sounds like my experience is different than yours on how. Here's how I tested. First from game menu and then in game on the bridge in the mission after Moscow overlooking the river at sunset.
1. Windows HDR on and then toggled the game on/off. Nothing changed at all. They've essentially set up a setting that's acting like a placebo. Turning off the games HDR had no effect. I was so excited that when this update came out and it didn't do total washout like before I hadn't noticed. I also noticed than even when turned off the AB overlay didn't change colors like it normally does. Either the HDR on/off is actually disabled and it's just in 'on' no matter what or they're using a dummy flag to force a synthetic HDR, or maybe something else. I don't know but you're right it's not working correctly. EDIT:I also checked the info from my t.v. the HDR indicator stayed during all parts of this test.
2. Windows HDR off. Could easily see the difference in brightness and contrast. AB switched back to orange like it should and HDR was removed from the settings menu. EDIT: T.V> correctly showed HDR was off here.
Oh well, guess I'm going back to SOTTR this weekend after all. Hopefully enough people will speak up about this and it'll get truly fixed but I have my doubts. Seems like there's less and less of us keeping track of this particular bug.
