How is that relevant?!? I said GoPro 9 not GoPro 8, and 7.

I was checking different modes just to check my TV compatibility.

H.264: 1080/60, 1080/120, 2.7k/60, 4k/30. All others were HEVEC. I haven't checked 4:3.

I doubt that any setting other than res/fps affect the codec type in use, except bitrate maybe (I set it to high).

Yeah, it's unreal forcing HEVEC on 1080/24/25/30. I would love to know the rational of a decision like that because it seem pretty idiotic if there arent technical limitations.
