So, I feel like by TRU, Lara could not bury the past without exploring the ossibilities of what had happened- she knew that her mother was most likely dead, but her ulterior motive was still to find her for closure- hopefully alive.
But in Legend Lara was doubting her father believing Amelia did not die and in the final cutscene she concludes Richard was right after all and she did not die as she previously thought so. 'Finding her closure' is not really an ulterior motive; it is in line with what she said in the cutscene you referred to: "I only want the truth, whatever it maybe."
