Description

The sRGB flag is enabled when importing hdr files. This is disabled in PostEditChangeProperty, but remains enabled if we do not edit the file.
I think the sRGB flag should be disabled for hdr images.

The following files included in the engine content are also enabled for sRGB.
/Engine/MapTemplates/Sky/DaylightAmbientCubemap.DaylightAmbientCubemap
/Engine/EditorMaterials/AssetViewer/EpicQuadPanorama_CC+EV1.EpicQuadPanorama_CC+EV1

Steps to Reproduce

1. Export "/Engine/MapTemplates/Sky/DaylightAmbientCubemap.DaylightAmbientCubemap" to .hdr image
2. Import that image into the project
3. The compression setting for the file is HDR, but the sRGB flag is enabled.
