Just tried to play with the file. It seems to me that the dng does not
contain raw data at all. Modifying the demosaicing seems to have no
effect, in particular when choosing "passthrough". That is not what I
would expect from real raw data.
Even exif data seem to be removed.

Some cameras offer options to save raws with lossless compression. I
would definitely keep the original raw files. If you need to save disk
space, try to consequently delete images that you are not going to use.
This will significantly improve the signal to noise ratio on your disk ;)
