I am giving elementary a new try and I cannot find a setting for tiling windows to the corners (splitting the left or right tile), not even to upper and bottom half of the screen (thus split the screen up/down).

Just right and left tile are present in settings:

There are some options in dconf / gsettings present, but they are not followed:

That list in dconf looks odd. Dconf reflects some keybindings for windows set in System Settings > Keyboard > Windows (e.g. for minimize) but doesn't reflect others.

This is so trivial in other desktops, is it really absent?

Yes, it really is absent.

There is an issue for it on GitHub here: https://github.com/elementary/gala/issues/105
