Retrofitted/modified modules conflict with progamming

For those of us that have various modifications to the modules in our cars (newer iDrive controller, newer MMI, newer NAVI03)... you may have encountered errors when programming (replace incorrect modules) or the dealer may have told you this when you brought it in for service that requires programming. I was wondering if I have to simply unplug the modules or do I have to take the module out and put the stock one back in? Because some of my stock modules I have already sold or they will be a huge PITA to get to compared to just unplugging it. I'm using ISTA/P with ICOM A+B to try and program another module that is not related to the ones previously retrofitted.

Did you find a solution to this dilemma? I was considering an ISTA/P setup but have also replaced the MMI / Navi / TCU.
Currently I put in the old modules before sending to the Dealer, as I was expecting issues like you mentioned.

It is required to have one of the modules from the range of part numbers of the stock part installed or else it will realize the module is missing and refuse to proceed.

I have Retro-Fitted a lot of parts in my car & I have not had any issue
at all when taking my car to the dealer for any service I have had done .
But I will say no programming is or was needed on my car since all my
cars modules are up to date ( Thanks to Tool 32 & Winkfp ) I have kept
my modules all up to the latest release ...
