There is a metal flange that sticks out of some lens that is used to protect the protruding rear element. The modification is usually non reversible, and requires physical filing off this metal flange so it does not interfere or collide with the speed booster.

Yes, I think that's it. I'm currently using a Novoflex Leica R to M 4/3 which doesn't have this problem. It's on an OMD EM5. The Leica R lenses are all MF, but I have all other functions including metering.
