OK, so I downloaded the source code from the darktable website and build
darktable from source:
$ darktable --version
this is darktable archive-c2f7fdb1fce2d1206cb6b86d19a2de03f71e2448

OpenMP support enabled
OpenCL support disabled
Lua support enabled, API version 3.0.0
Colord support disabled
gPhoto2 support enabled
GraphicsMagick support enabled
Then I rebuilt babl/GEGL/libmypaint/GIMP from scratch.
Navigating to the folder to open the CR2 file, and selecting the file
type, there is still no CR2 option listed in the file type drop-down
Opening the CR2 file still results in getting the 8-bit embedded jpeg.
So I guess I still don't know whatever it is that I might be doing wrong.
