That's alternative (2) in my message, which is effectively the same as
(3 - default to privacy policy) as far as a client is concerned.

I.e. the site says "I am tracking you" (always) and the site (by not including a compliance link) does not make any more detailed claims what this may mean.

Yes, though note that "T" means data collected by the designated resource
might be used in tracking.  It does not indicate compliance (or lack of
compliance) with the user's preference (DNT:1).
