Below picture on the left show the correct distortion for wide angle camera and that's without the lens correction.
That's what it should be.

The photos you posted are full barrel and in the corrected version have a distortion called keystone. However the lines are straingh.
The photo I posted before from Leica lenses is full pincushion as thr XZP one. In wide lenses, the pincushion is located near the centre of the frame while at the corners there is a little barrel distortion. If you saw more on the link posted, also Canon and Olympus have impressive pincushion distortion without software corrective algorithm.
So, also S8, iPhones and others without corrective algorithm would have pincushion distortion because the geometry of the lenses. I'm the firts who is very annoying about this and annoied cause I might use Photoshop to correct all photo with distortion but this is the actual approach of Sony, pure photography. Actually is inferior in front of the others brands cause this issue, an issue due to the fact that users want a quite perfect camera.

I'm not here to play some game or joke, I express only what in my opinion is the approach of Sony to photography. Again, I'm the first how find this distortion very annojing and frustrating but the only thing to do is accept, for now, the issue and try to shoot in the better way possible to reduce the distortion because is impossible to delete without algorithm. personally I think Sony will not release a fix and I think creates a new part of camera software for the next year devices.
However, your distortion is ALWAYS pincushion and you could fix it with the app SKRWT that have a dedicated filter to adjust barrel and pincushion distortions. With my X Compact I taken a perfectly squared painting on the wall but I had several tentatives before take a good shot and this is not acceptable in all day photography, I'm the first to say it.
The distortion is ALWAYS a kind of pincushion effect, the entity varies with the distance and light path through the lenses.
Sorry, but this is my last answer to you, there is not more to add.
If you are not satisfied of your XZP, I am intereste to buy it if you sell it. :smileysmileythumbsup:
