Distortion Nikkor 24mm f1.8 S lens

I found a significant level of barrel distortion using  Nikon Z 7 from a very new Nikkor 24mm f1.8 S, which is more than my former Nikkor 14-24 f2.8 at 24mm/ Nikon 810. I have set the camera at Auto distortion correction. I have learnt, however, that the camera does not, actually, correct the distortion, but it merely puts instructions in the metadata that tell RAW converter/developer to correct the distortion. LR does it in silent.

However, I don't use LR but Luminar and Photos. So the question is variable 1- Is the camera failing to send instructions? 2- Is Photos unable to correct the RAW file or 3- is the lens a bad copy? The firmware is updated to 2,10

Does anyone have a similar experience, pls advise
