Yes there is. The very existence of this thread and the strong opinions expressed illustrate that there is a definite marketing advantage to having people think that there is Olympus special sauce in this sensor (as there might be). Same resoning as Nikon never comes clean about getting sensors from Sony.

Marketing for 0.1% of users? And who is buying the M5 because he does not know what sensor it has? Does not make sense.

More than a hint. Previous practice. But no hard evidence either way. Which works both ways.

If it was previous practice, they'd just say it's a Panasonic sensor and move on.
Yes, FF has more DoF control than m43.
No, f2 is f2 is f2.
