There is a small wrapper in digiKam. Look into
libs/dimg/filters/lens/lensfiface::findFromMetadata(). It miss probably a rule
to check this Olympus Makernotes.

I suspect that user use internal digiKam lensfun, and user look in external
source code (current one) which can be different than internal. In fact
internal code is the last lensfun stable. It can be updated of course... but i
think that we can always use now an external depency. In the past, i add
lensfun code to digiKam because it have not very available everywhere. This is
completly different now...
