Shall we accept it as a solution that this wonderful compact camera Canon PowerShot G5X mark ii does shows the focal ditsnce of its 8.8-44 mm lens only in Auto mode, but not in PSQM and C modes?

Why does the exposure mode in the lower part of the screen show multiple bars? Are you in some kind of bracketing mode?
Here is another picture showing 10cm to infinity. Here are all distances you can get by moving the zoom from 8.8mm to 44mm focal distance: 5, 5, 5, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 15, 15, 15, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, all in cm to infinity. What do they mean? What is the DoF at the third 10cm, f/8 and subject at 4 m?

I think what you're seeing is the reported possible auto-focus range at a given zoom point. In this image, zoomed about two-thirds out, the camera is saying it is capable of focusing on objects between 15 cm and infinity. If you widen the lens to wide angle, it should change to 5 cm to infinity (I think -- mine is in inches ad shows 1.9 inches as the minimum focal distance). This is there as a reminder that when you zoom, the MFD is farther from the lens.
