I have a 100' roll of Vision2 200T that I am getting developed.
In each different lighting setup, I shot the grey card.

What are the typical requests make when a film is sent in for developing?

if it's just being developed, all you need to tell the lab is "process normal" (or pull or push, and how much, if you want them to do that) If it's destined for the telecine, then sometimes you ask "prep for telecine". Talk to your friendly lab people, they'll walk you through anything you need to know.

In terms of development, they don't reference your gray card, that comes later with telecine or workprinting.

Yes, the processing doesn't "care" how you shot or exposed or filtered the film, they just want to know if you want normal development, or push / pull development (and by how many stops). Whether you shot the film in a special way to compensate for normal, push, or pull processing is up to you.

It sounds like you shot it for normal processing.

Color-timing or color-correcting the image for making a print or a video transfer is where the adjustments come in based on your gray scale and other instructions you give them.
