Yeah, Shimano and SRAM have largely give organic pads a bad name as that’s what their cheap pads are and it really is an upgrade on any of their brakes to install sintered. Those Resin only rotors are ridiculous. Not having to replace the rotors before riding the bike is the number one reason to look for Tektro brakes at lower price points. They use Shimano pads and fluid so really - no negatives. For an example of quality organic/resin pads look at Magura. Even their crazy-grabby Race pads are organic. No sintered option available.
