Thanks for the positive feedback, the developers will appreciate it.
You are correct, a "projection" or volumetric light from headlights is a specific additional feature and is not part of the v4.5 improvements.
It should be possible for the headlights to reflect on road surfaces when the surface has a suitable reflectivity setting so that the brightness of the material will be picked up and shown. I have not tested this myself, but it is shown as such in the Preview 4.5 video
