Lightroom: Importing ORF files does not import all image area

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Classic: Raw Import Aspect Ratio Crop

I am using Lightroom with my Olympus XZ-1.
When I shoot in RAW (ORF) I like to select 3:2 aspect ratio in the camera because this way I see the 3:2 framing in the LCD when shooting.

The camera saves to file the full sensor data in 4:3 aspect ratio, along with the crop information to obtain the 3:2 aspect ratio image I have shot. In Olympus viewer it is possible to correct cropping if needed and the full sensor data is avaliable.

Lightroom does not treat the file as expected since the image is imported as a 3:2 image as shot, but the data around the 3:2 cropped area is not avaliable.
It should import ORF images as 4:3 images with a crop setting already applied, so that it could be modified.

This seems to happen with ORF files from all cameras as can be seen here:

Same problem seems to be reported some times before for all cameras, not just Olympus. It's currently the normal behaviour of Lightroom.

It would be much better to just apply a crop tool setting according to the camera setting during import rather than hard cropping the image.
