DJI X5R Built-In Lens Profile Not Correcting Chromatic Aberrations Properly

Hi there, I'm having some trouble processing DJI X5R DNGs with Adobe Camera Raw. All DNGs I take with the Olympus Zuiko 25/1.8 show heavy chromatic aberration AFTER Adobe Camera Raw applies the integrated lens profile.

The proxy-files produced by the X5R do not show any problems, it's the same when I process the files with DJI Cinelight, even when I place the DNG-files in Premiere Pro CC and do the color correction with the Lumetri engine, there is no chromatic aberration.
So the lens itself should not be the problem.

As a test I have used DNG Cleaner for Apple to erase the integrated profile and when doing that, Adobe Camera Raw imports the DNGs without integrated profile and without any chromatic aberration.

The downside of DNG Cleaner is that it is one more step in processing the RAWs, and Premiere Pro will not accept the files as a sequence.

So it would be great to have the possibility to deactivate the integrated lens profile directly in Adobe Camera Raw!

Here are links to the DNGs:

It appears LR is
incorrectly applying the chromatic aberration correction data embedded
in the DJI X5R DNG file. Disabling the built-in lens profile prevents applying the
correction data, but that doesn't address the actual problem.

Adobe needs to determine why the Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom Built-in Lens Correction data for chromatic aberrations is being  incorrectly applied for this camera.
