Well, that explains the slide/rub mark on the stop where the stop screw passed it. I am unsure, but the motor stop/ reverse would be pressure actuated as part of the safety system. It seems like the motor is not stopping as it should. I don't know for sure though.
Perhaps one of the forum electrical experts knows. I could not find clear information on how the motor shut off works in the Bentley manual.

Here is a DIY for replacing the motor in an E36. In step 7 of the installation part toward the end, it mentions teaching the motor the travel limits. Perhaps you could try that. If that does not work, I am going to guess that your motor needs replaced since it sounds like the sensor function is integral to the motor.

Good luck.
