Do the newer lathes that offer both metrics and american standards threads have essentially a 100/127 gear as part of the QC box or do they do it with step motors and electronics?

Output from my gearbox chart calculator (attached). Note the 1st and 3rd pitch columns. 5mm and 4mm pitch require the 40 tooth stud gear. 1MM pitch takes care of probably 90% of my metric needs. That won't be true for everybody.
You can change the stud gear to any of the stud gears listed on the metric transposing chart to see what it looks like.
