WcsRequest MimeType.TIFF_d16 range

I have noticed range values of MimeType.TIFF_d16 are quite diferent than the original images.
Almost all values of a satellite image usually are between 0 and 5000 (e.g. this happen when downloading the whole image from Copernicus).
But, downloading raw images with sentinel-hub return images between 0 and 15000 or even higher.

Why does it happen? Does Sentinel-hub make any transformation before uploading the image? How that transformation works?

Thank you.

If you are using OGC services (WCS, etc.), you might want to read this post, which should hopefully answer your questions:

I recommend you try to use our new API, which makes it more straighftorward on how data are passed from original sensor values to you.
