Raw files not created equally

I have shot with a Panasonic Lumix GX9 since 2019. Very recently I added an Olympus E-M5 Mark III and have noticed a definite difference between the Panasonic .RW2 raw files and Olympus .ORF raw files after importing them into Lightroom. On import they are converted to .DNG. Lightroom may do some processing on the images during import, but whatever it does, it does to both raw file types.

One noticeable difference after import is white balance. It is reasonably accurate on the Olympus images, but not the Lumix images (adjusting WB on those images makes a big difference). The Olympus images look generally better before I add any post processing. Is it simply a matter of image quality between these two cameras? What do you think could making the difference?
