Because they're not needed. The lens correction data is built into the m43 raw files, so LR applies them automatically. CaNikon and other brands don't provide that information, so the lens profile needs to be separate.

Just one more way m43 leads the pack.

I don't call that leading the park, I would prefer to be given the choice as to whether I want to apply those corrections or not. In the case of wide angle lenses the corrections squeeze the data in the corners and there are situations where I'd prefer to decide myself whether to apply those corrections or not. I don't see how forcing these corrections upon us is an improvement over Canon or Nikon.
