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 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 a search.
here is what i have on mine. very inexpensive and no vignetting:
