Yes, it works idling or in motion. I'm still wondering how yours works. Do you navigate to the oil level screen and then wait as the engine revs up and then displays the level? Sounds kind of strange and unnecessary. And it does seem to work exactly as my E90 335i did (N54). Can't you leave your Vehicle Status menu on the oil level sub-menu and when you go there, the oil is already displaying? Or do you have to initiate something each time you want it to be measured?
