Lightroom: Lens profiles missing after importing images using a teleconverter

The latest addition to my lens collection was a Nikon TC-20E III teleconverter.  Lightroom did not have a lens profile for it, fair enough.  The problem now is ever since I imported those initial teleconverter images, only a few Nikon built-in lens profiles seem to be available (and none for my lenses :-( ). 



Any suggestions for correcting this?  I have no idea how or where Lightroom manages these lens profiles.  This all happened on 6.9.  I just upgraded to 6.12 but the problem persists.

Thanks, Tom

Are you perhaps using JPEG images? Most lens profiles are only for RAW images.

Well what do you know!  I had sent my camera out for a sensor cleaning around the same time, and the service must have reset my camera settings.  I shoot raw, but I see all images are jpg since the cleaning...I noticed a few settings had changed, but I never even checked format.

Thanks for the tip.
