Question Oil service indicator @ 11K miles?

Last week I took the car in for service - interior squeak and pot hole that massively f-ed up a tire & wheel, but not sufficiently for the t/w insurance to cover it, but I disgress, it also screwed up the adaptive headlight. Anyway, I asked if it was possible to get the free oil changed with 4k miles to go (to 15k) as my car was a leftover 2011 purchased this year. "Nope" they said.

As I am driving out the dealer the "service soon" reminder lighted up. I thought "early notice is early" and have been ignoring the reminder for a few days. Today I looked thru the vehicle info menu, and (wtf) it appears to tell me that the oil change was due at 11000 mls (wtf)

anyone care to chime in? i thought BMW change the service intervals from 10 to 15k, yet the thing says 11k?
