PPro is recognizing my footage as Variable Frame Rate (see this in footage properties).

Variable Frame Rate Detected
...however unlike other Variable Frame Rate clips shot in H264, I'm NOT shown a Variable Frame Rate Mode for this HEVC clip.
I have test-clips here...
...including "thru MediaEncoder" showing the short clips appearing in-sync and long (2042) clip going out-of-sync.
But the best sample is the big one...
IMG2042 Gord **** FFR AirPodMic 4K MoviePro.mov
...on my PC playing the raw footage starts skipping around visually throughout (mostly showing first few seconds) and is obviously out of sync by 13 seconds.
I don't expect perfect in-sync on my PC, but I can't even edit with it... there's no amount of time that will resolve a frame in the middle of the timeline correctly. Not even a bit out-of-sync, it just repeats frames from start of clip.
I've received help in the forum...
...and note comment...

"My machine is more powerfull then yours but it cannot handle the 2042 clip; ... Does not play, stuck on first frame, audio runs."
...that is my exact experience too.
SABERTOOTH X79 Rev 1.xx
BIOS by American Megaternds v4801

Mercury Transmit DISABLED.
CUDA Mercury Acceleration ENABLED.
For now I've used Handbrake to transcode to 1080P H264. (Handbrake and VLC can interpret the clip fine.)
It seems PPro supports HEVC and PPro supports VFR... could PPro please support both in combination?
