Question to both Oly and Pana RAW shooters

My question is about embedded into the RAW files JPGs.

I do not have Oly camera, my current camera is GH2. My RW2 files do not have any embedded JPGs. Moreover, I've opened my RW2 files in notepad as binary to see whether they have embedded JPGs. I did not find any embedded JPG in Pana RW2.

I'm confused (and reluctant) to think that Oly is different. I understand when I shoot RAW + JPG I have complementary JPG, but when I shoot a single RAW, what is the purpose of embedding a JPG? Can Oly shoot a single RAW without embedding any JPG?
