All die markings say is that the sensor was manufactured at Panasonic fab. It might as well be designed by Sony and then they could outsource production to Panasonic.

No - the die markings are put there by the people who design the chip, not the fab line. That's why the die markings for Nikon sensors say 'Nikon'.
