those look like spline drive "tuner" lugs. 6 point, fairly common, i do not believe thats an actual "lock'
usually used on rims where there isnt enough space to fit a hex head lug. my winter rims use those lugs.

my guess would be the person who owned it before had a winter wheel set that came with those lugs and used them instead of the bmw lugs-- did you check the trunk/glovebox for something like this:

you can probably find it locally-- i recommend buying more than one, when used with impact tools, they sometimes split.
