After all, I set aq-mode 0 and it almost solves the problem. But i don't know how it affects to encode quality in general.

I use CRF 20 (21-23mbps) for UHD and CRF 12-14 (17-18mbps) for FHD.

--hdr-opt is definitely necessary, but --cbqpoffs -3 --crqpoffs -3 fixes color issues a little. I don't know why it needed with HDR.

I didn't change chromaloc, but UHD requires Chroma subsampling : 4:2:0 (Type 2), so i add flag --chromaloc 2

Not that content doesn't get made that way sometimes, but I'd definitely investigate the content to make sure something didn't go horribly wrong.
There is mediainfo of my sample below (it is a general movie, nothing special):

Color range : Limited
Color primaries : BT.2020
Transfer characteristics : PQ
Matrix coefficients : BT.2020 non-constant
Mastering display color primaries : Display P3
Mastering display luminance : min: 0.0050 cd/m2, max: 4000 cd/m2
Maximum Content Light Level : 3241 cd/m2
Maximum Frame-Average Light Level : 902 cd/m2
