White dot on digital fuel gauge, WTH is it?!

Hey everyone, I have been to the depths of the internet and back trying to figure out what is going on here, not to mention the dealership was no help. It's a white dot that appears on the digital gas gauge when I have a destination active in the navigation. The vehicle is a '13 550i picked up in November. My first assumption was the it was telling me how much fuel it would use to get to the destination, which would make sense. If the white dot was indicating you would need fuel before you would arrive at the destination, then you could plan accordingly. But, sometimes its closer to the full side when its just a 20/25 mile trip. I dont understand!

Hopefully y'all can help. You can see the mysterious white dot closer to empty just to the right of '0'.
