O/S is Lubuntu 18.04.  No RAID or LVM drivers are installed.

And that's the problem (BTW, face this all the time). If you set "RAID" at the BIOS, that's "hardware RAID" board taking over, and that means (almost certainly) a Linux software driver for the distro mandatory. And that (certainly) means you're locked down (to one or two) distros (... a Linux enterprise world catch right there!).

I'm already hearing somebody will come up here saying you don't need hardware RAID and I can tell you, that's just a lie if you're in for the best your hardware can do (traditional Linux world excuses).
Does RAID / LVM software play a role that I haven't understood or
figured out until now?

You've got the answer.
