If that is the case (I haven't ever played PnP) then it would seem to me that 5e PnP combat has not been translated well into BG3. Is there so much emphasis placed on gaining the high ground and jumping behind opponents in PnP? Genuinely curious.

The opposite is true.
Backstabbing and jumping work differently in DnD 5e.
Also the action economy is different, well as some Claas feats.

But, to be fair, also a lot is still missing (races, classes, feats, spells, etc.)

In my opinion, combat in 5e and in BG3 feels very differently. Larian changed a few things, and the changes have a huge impact.
