Panasonic is a huge corporation that have many divisions. The corporation's interest is that each division should be profitable.

When Panasonic camera division states they will not use PDAF on sensor, it doesn't mean at all that Panasonic sensor division will not produce it for other companies.

Panasonic Camera Division has a strategy. Panasonic Sensor Division has another. They are independent.

And you know this how? IMO, it would be foolish for a corporation to automatically allow each division to have completely independent strategies. For example, Olympus officials have emphasized synergies between their imaging and medical divisions. In most, if not all, companies, divisions have strategies that are reviewed and often modified by top management with the goal of maximizing overall corporate profits. Thus, the extent to which division strategies are independent is decided by the top brass.

The way most fortune 500 companies work is how Pixnat2 describes.  Each division is judged off of its profitability, along with bonuses, etc.  Occasionally, you may get more than one division under a senior VP, in which case the lines may blur slightly but generally not too much.
