Here is why. The idea is that in the whole process of maximum acceleration, to keep the AVERAGE engine rpm as close as possible on the POWER PEAK.

Of course, it will never happen if you never pass the peak.

Best evidence are in CVT equipped cars. When you mash their throttle, they are programmed to keep the rpm on peak power.
No one would hold onto an E90 over an F30 over the type of minutiae you are mentioning, and no one would purchase either an E90 or an F30 as a track car. BMW has moved on.
