I tended to agree with you until I discovered that the sensor appeared to be on the left side of the car just right of the tailpipes on the 428i GC. Now I can get it to work almost 100% of the time...

When I trip the trunk closure using my foot under the bumper mine beeps and flashes the lights once. It will stop if you put your hand on the trunk lip or physically restrain it from closing.

I suspect BMW NA consider the fact that you can 'waggle' or 'kick' your foot under the rear bumper/valance to close the trunk on the GC is sufficient. So the need for a fob operated close option was...
