Does the Minolta 28mm M Rokkor lens use a Leica formula?

Back in the day, there were two very small and, in my view, wonderful 35mm film cameras, one by Leica (the Leica CL) and the other by Minolta (the Minolta CLE).  I owned a Leica CL.

As I distantly recall, the Minolta CLE and its three lenses may have been made by Minolta using Leica lens formulations for its three lenses, the 28mm, the 40mm and the 90mm.

My question:  Are the three Minolta CLE lenses really Leica in formulation, or do they differ.

I ask this because I still have a very clean copy of the Minolta 28mm Rokkor M and intend to use it via adapter on my Sony A7riii camera.  If the 28mm Rokkor is essentially a Leica formulation, would an Elmarit 28mm lens profile work in Lightroom.  (There is no Lightroom profile for the Minolta 28mm.)

Thanks for any insight you might share.
