Yes, it's designed as an adapter for the Panny cameras to allow the use of 58mm filters.

I use a 58mm-49mm step down ring to allow the use of my 49mm accessories, lens cap included.

This Janco FZ18 58mm Adapter is the one I use.
Do you get vignetting with this panny-hood plus the 58-49 step down plus a filter (on FA31)? I just got the same config and so far only tested my 49mm CPL and it vignettes.. I haven't tried taking the panny-hood off yet to just do the straight step down.. (Was going to try yesterday but forgot the step down ring and was out all day...)

I recently bough one of those FZ18 58mm adapters for mine and it works a treat. Also now able to use a pinch cap instead of the original one!

That looks really expensive. I went with something similar and it was like 5 bucks...search other threads on this. To answer your original question, the flanged out shape may still work within the built in hood as the threads themselves are well inside that diameter...do a search.
here is what i have on mine. very inexpensive and no vignetting:
