On Mac, Phase One, DxO and other use Raw File information, provided by Apple. (Which Apple updates about once every month or 2.) I can't say about PC but I as assume Microsoft has a similar procedure. I just checked App store and they just uploaded a RAW update file. see attachment.
This is what is used with software other than Adobe. Phase One, and DxO and so on I hope this answers.
here is the link to the RAW to DNG Converter it has info for Mac/ PC
