At line 81 of raw.c, you are using 6*.../10 as green component factor when creating a thumbnail for the DHG format.

Why 6 and 10 ?

And are you using both green component of the Bayer cross?

DNG... A forum search might reveal details, that code has evolved, it wasn't always 0.6. There is no color matrix or white balance applied to the thumbnail, so I suppose it's just an attempt to adjust the colors so that they're reasonably tolerable on most cameras.

No. It's supposed to be very simple and fast. It just gets a few pixels here and there and scales them around a bit according to a common gamma curve to cook up rgb pixels that are close enough.
