From October's titles, both Uncut Gems and High Sierra are US only titles.

Crash wasn't available in Canada until just recently. Mulholland Drive is a weird case since Unonatructed View have the listings for the original Blu/DVD, so I have no idea why the 4K wouldn't be released here.

I wonder if it was because the initial release was licensed from Universal and when their rights expired Criterion/Janus were only able to acquire the US rights?

A different distributor (not Universal) owns/owned the Canadian rights to the film. I had the original DVD, which was distributed through TVA/Columbia Tri-Star, though it was ultimately just a port of the Universal disc. It's possible the rights have jumped around up there like it has here and that's the reason for no 4K disc now.

Here are the rare finds: "Mulholland Drive" U.S.TV commercials (for U.S. theatrical release) , sadly Criterion didn't get them.

Interesting how the first of these trailers reassigns the line "Whoever you're hiding from, they know where you are" from the character of Cookie (Geno Silva) to Mr. Roche (Michael J. Anderson) through editing trickery. Trailer-making is a strange sport indeed.

I just popped in the blu ray and noticed that there is no “timeline” nor “chapters” option.
Strange.

This is at the direction of Lynch.

What Drucker said, Lynch feels all films need to be consumed at once without breaks/skipping around, and this is a stipulation for all his home video releases, at least with Criterion

Oh wow, I never noticed this before.
Based on what you said, I just checked, and there is actually no chapter breaks in the film at all.
Very interesting!

The very first DVD release of the film was like this, including a director's statement about it

Also see Polanski's Knife In The Water for similar.

Wonder if the 4K disc just starts with the movie playing, and no menu at all

IIRC this was the main reason for anyone to get the budget-priced standard BD of Blue Velvet's 4K restoration. Same master as Criterion's (albeit with noticeably different grading), but with chapters authored into the disc.

The two Blue Velvet Blu-rays are absolutely not the same transfer.

I stand corrected! I just looked at Blu-ray.com's captures of the earlier BD's actual packaging and no mention of 4K restoration anywhere. (Though FWIW, both are personally supervised Lynch and include the newly-discovered outtakes film that Lynch put together.)
