I'm into speculation, so here's a far-out guess: the US exports X5d vehicles. The USA has export controls under ITAR for encryption and products that have encrypted portions. Therefore, DDEs exported from the USA have to meet different standards (be more easily de-crypted, generally) than those exported from Europe.
