Where do you find hidden base ini(s)

I want to take some epic screenshots of ARK: Survival Evolved using nvidia ansel, BUT the settings for graphics only goes up to ultra (scalability settings). Opening up ARK\ShooterGame\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditorGameUserSettings.ini I find

[ScalabilityGroups]
sg.ResolutionQuality=100
sg.ViewDistanceQuality=3
sg.AntiAliasingQuality=0
sg.ShadowQuality=3
sg.PostProcessQuality=3
sg.TextureQuality=3
sg.EffectsQuality=3
sg.TrueSkyQuality=0
sg.GroundClutterQuality=0
sg.IBLQuality=1
sg.HeightFieldShadowQuality=3
sg.GroundClutterRadius=0

I can replace a few lines because I’m aware of scalability groups. for example [UnrealCapabilityDetect/BaseScalability.ini at master · GameTechDev/UnrealCapabilityDetect · GitHub
sg.ViewDistanceQuality=Cine
sg.AntiAliasingQuality=Cine
sg.ShadowQuality=Cine
sg.PostProcessQuality=Cine
sg.TextureQuality=Cine
sg.EffectsQuality=Cine

but then there are these lines
sg.GroundClutterQuality=0
sg.IBLQuality=1
sg.HeightFieldShadowQuality=3
sg.GroundClutterRadius=0

following back the file hierarchy [ https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/Programming/Basics/ConfigurationFiles ] and checking all other ini files there is nothing else regarding scalability. There are no base ini files in ARK. They are somehow hidden and because of this I cannot see if there are Cine groups for the settings above.

Is there some way I can find these base ini files or maybe some other way to find out if there are cine settings for the settings above

I think the ARK forum is a better place for asking that question: https://survivetheark.com/
