The old docks (mini series 3) had a version with two passthrough DisplayPort
I am reading the Ultra dock is a single DisplayPort ran through an MST hub? What ? Now that even IGP supports three displays there is no way to actually use all of the video bandwidth available?

I read https://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/solutions/pd029622 Pay particular attention to the 3840 x 2160 @30Hz max when two DP monitors are connected vs 3840 x 2160 @60Hz when only one is. That screams the bandwidth of one signal is split into two, doesn't it?
There are a multitude of blog posts reporting the presence of an MST hub in the Ultra dock (and the problems this caused especially under Linux with originally missing / then spotty MST support):
