Nikkor 18-300 3.5-5.6 or 6.5, using the new Fringer adapter

I’ve been contemplating one of the Nikon 18-300 options (or the cheaper Sigma version) with the new Fringer smart adapter.  I understand that a 16x zoom is intended for versatility when you don’t want to bring a lot of lenses with you, so there are trade offs.  That said, the reviews made them sound decently ok... until I read that the Nikkor can have pretty dramatic distortion, but that it’s not a big issue as the newer Nikon cameras correct for it in camera.  But this makes me worry that if using it adapted to Fuji camera you get no correction and perhaps it’s pretty bad.  Anyone have these using them on Fuji camera?
