Lightbulb What is the extra connection pin on MC14 for?

And also, why are there two connector pads in that location on the 40-150 Pro lens?
Solved (I think). There is no firmware in the MC14.

Here's the MC14 with one extra connector pin.

And the lens (40-150 Pro) with two connection pads at that location.

I think I have seen a rumour of a 2 times (or was 1.7 times?) teleconverter Olympus patent & wonder if the other pad is designed for that when it comes?

Any clues anyone?
