Komodo - Stockfish Superfinal Openings

In my recent post about TCEC Season 7 I noted,

The last round 'Superfinal' between Komodo and Stockfish was a 64-game match where the adversaries played both White and Black on 32 hand picked openings. [...] The Superfinal finished in Komodo's favor +7-4=53, with White winning all decisive games.

What openings were used and how did they fare? The following tables are sorted by result and ECO code.
