How wide is 24 mm eqiuv. on a GM 1 w. 12-32 kit lens?


I am new to the MFT forum and need some urgent advice.

When I shoot JPGs in 3:2 mode on a GM1 at 12 mm with the kit lens I don't cover the same field of view as with a full frame DSLR at  24 mm from the exact same POV and settings.

A considerable gap of - estimated 10 degrees is missing in the GM 1 frame which is a lot.

I always thought that despite the in camera RAW development the angle value of a lens should state the field of view equivalent to a 35mm camera in JPGs.

Could some of the more experienced MFT users please explain?

Thanks in advance.
