That might be an explanation. While technically incorrect, I could see how they might consider DEF as part of the "fuel" system, or at least the survey repondents could. And it would be yet another example of BMW NA ineptly shooting themselves in the foot -- I am sure people responding to the CR survey with a 35D would consider it a "problem" if they got an early DEF warning due to partially-filled DEF tanks from the factory, particularly if BMW charged them $$$ for the DEF refill as part of the "free" BMW maintenance they advertise so widely.
