Distortion correction for the Leica DG Vario- Elmarit 8-18mm F2.8-4

Normally I Iet my RAW developer in ACDSee Ultimate make any lens geometric distortion corrections.

This software uses data from the Lensfun database and corrects my RAW files from other lenses just fine.

Unfortunately there is no correction lens profile stored in that database for this Leica 8-18 lens

Now, I read somewhere that this lens has very little distortion, and possibly because it is already corrected even on the RAW images “inside the camera”

Not sure if I believe that?
Does this correction really work on RAW images and does it work with my Olympus OMD EM1 Mk ii. (latest firmware)
Or does any correction only work on JPG’s and/or only when used with Panasonic cameras ?

Thanks for your insight or tips on this.
