Registering adapted lenses on GFX

I am confused about what it means to register a lens on a GFX.  I have a ton of adapted lenses, most of which have no electrical connection to the camera.  Yesterday, I tried registering an ancient Minolta and then shot with it.  When I look at the Exif data, there is nothing to see.  I understand that the camera wouldn't know the f-stop without an electrical connection, but is there no way for the camera to use whichever registered lens is selected to include the focal length in the Exif?  Or, does the lens registration system depend on an electrical connection?  The manual doesn't really answer these questions.  Thanks!
