Of course ideal would be to measure capacitance in ohm function, but I think it's very difficult to do it, so I did in DCV just to have at least an idea of the order of magnitude of the value.

Capacity in DCV basically has nothing to do with ohm ranges.
I explain a bit about multimeters here: https://lygte-info.dk/info/DMMDesign%20UK.html
and here: https://lygte-info.dk/info/DMMDesignProtection%20UK.html#Ohm/Continuity/Diode/Capacity

The second link shows the typical input circuit for ohms (and other ranges), the first link shows the typical measurement circuit.

Given the varied responses by different meters, I think it's fair to say that some at least may be atypical, in implementation if not broad theory of operation.

That is correct, but all DMM's has a high-z voltage input and at least one low-z path (current output) in ohms (Together with a very high z input path), i.e. very different.
