I make a test with brush setting: Nomal and Linear Dodge and paint in black mask but don't see different.
I'll tell you what I do. first linear dodge just means I can set a dark color and have it build up slowly. It's different from going over it at low opacity. Try filling a blank layer with black and painting with that brush mode and a very dark swatch such as 10,10,10 repeatedly to get an idea how it works. I don't like the way multiply is implemented in photoshop, so I avoid it for most things. I really hate screen, so I don't use that at all. It's too inconsistent across its range, and I hate inconsistency.
