Q: Does the original BMW battery configuration have the vent tube attached to an elbow which is then attached to the vent hole in the stock BMW battery?
Yes, mine did. I think you'll see that the vent tube itself won't go directly into the battery.

My MTP-H9 also came with a plug, which goes in the opposite side of the vent hole.

Someone has to have this part. You could try a stealer, or call BavAuto or a place like that.
