You're correct in that they came with only 4 and 6 cylinder engines. But, one of the 8 cylinder engines (M62 per Joe) came with vanos.

I could not remember which V8 had it. If OP's did, it could be a possible cause of the noise. I related it to my E36 because, when it was down for 6 months or so, the vanos made a very similar noise for a short time after the first start up.
Most problems are usually something simple !
