1 channel images using Merge Mertens

I want to implement exposure fusion on black/white images (1 channel 8 bits). The OpenCV documentation has no channel specification on the input images.

So far, The code runs fine, so I guess 1 channel is supportive. However, the original paper and code by Mertens use 3 channel input. I wonder how is each measure implemented in OpenCV with 1 channel input?

For contrast measure, is the conversion to 1 channel skipped?

For saturation measure, is its weight just 0, meaning no effect of this measure? Because there is no standard deviation between channels. We have only 1.

For well-exposedness measure, gauss curve applied to just 1 channel?

I cannot find anything related on the web. Any responses would be appreciated!

by reading the source code, greyscale inputs work fine too... basically same behaviour as expected
