I suspect there is more that "factory" and "dealer" in this calculus.... when the dealer says "It was done at the factory" all this means is "we didn't do it".

There are multiple places in the process after they car is assembled where it can occur. for example, where are the cars fueled??? VPC? Perhaps the process is "one liter of DEF, 5 gallons of fuel during MFG.... then full prep at the last BMW factility" (Why pay to ship full cars via train?)
