R5 Histogram question

Bentley9

I just bought the R5 and I have question about the histogram.  I'm also new to Canon in general so this is probably a me problem.  In both the view finder and the display screen the histogram has 5 sections but only the left three are registering any information.  The two on the right are grayed and do not display any information.  Is this a setting I'm missing?  Thanks for your input.

Are your images very dark? The right-hand portion of a histogram would only be filled if there are brighter areas in the image.

 

Do you have an example image along with its histogram?

I accidentally found the answer.  I'm still not sure if it should behave this way but when I disabled the HDR PQ setting the histogram behaved the way i expected.  I found this because I was testing the electronic shutter and that isn't available with the HDR PQ enabled.  I appreciate the response I would be curious if yours behaves in the same way.
