Nope.

I've read that the camera can register profiles for manual lenses

Where did you read that?

As far as I know the $400 Leica M Adapter L is currently the only manual lens adapter that can read the EXIF code hardwired on some Leica M lenses. Does it work with the fp, I haven't had a chance to try that yet.

Other than that the fp has the Lens Optics Compensation feature where you can fine tune colour shading and enter lens information like focal length and speed for your manual lenses.

You do that manually. The camera does not read anything from manual lenses. Nonetheless, that's the closest to registering profiles you were apparently referring to, and it's not that different from how it's being done in some other cameras as well.

but there's not a lot written about this, and the camera manual is massive.

If you say so. 
That's where the above info is, though, on pages 95 and 96, as listed in the table of contents.
