I just found the USB settings, still part of the pull-down notifications list at the top of the screen. It's just a single line at first, in very small text, saying
Android System USB for file transfer
with a down arrow next to it. Tapping that adds a line saying Tap for other USB options. Tapping that, I find the whole list of choices that I mentioned before. Since it's working well for me as is, I'm not going to change anything there or even experiment with it!
