Lightroom 6 can see and convert Olympus raw (orf) files. However, in the lens profile section, there is no inclusion of Olympus, or any of its pro lenses. I see the lens file on the C drive, but they still don't appear in the Develop mode of 6. Any ideas?

If you look in the Profile tab of the Lens Corrections section and turn OFF Enable Profile Corrections, is there is a little info balloon (i) that says a built-in profile has been used?

If you turn ON Enable Profile Corrections then that same area will say it is unable to locate a lens profile. That is why it is important to turn off the checkbox.

You are quite correct. It does indeed says that a built in profile has been applied.
I am using an Olympus omd em1 with the 12-40 & 40-200 2.8 pro lenses. Bought this kit for travel. I'm an old Nikon guy & the stuff is just getting too heavy. I am used to,however, Lightroom showing me what Nikon profile it is recognizing. Is the built-in profile it's using for the oly the correct one?

Mirrorless cameras use built-in profiles.
