In body UWA lens distortion correction.

Please bear with me as I am new to this.
I am considering a wide angle zoom for my new G9 body, so it is currently between the Panasonic 7-14mm or the Olympus 9-18mm.

Now I understand that some of the natural shortcomings of these lenses are corrected digitally by the camera body, but presumably only if lens and body are the same brand? So a Panasonic body won't correct an Olympus lens?

Secondly, where this correction does occur, does it happen with both JPEG and RAW , or is the RAW file left untouched? I shoot RAW and am happy to do do minor processing in Lightroom, but don't really want to have to get involved in lens correction.

Would appreciate any advice from people more knowledgeable in this.
