E60 M5 rear struts or rear shocks?

So I have an extended warranty on my 2008 M5 aprox. 55K miles. They agreed to replace the front struts but not the rears because they claim they are shocks and not struts.

Question 1: Are the shocks or struts? (struts in my opinion)

Question 2: If they are struts how would I go about proving this to them?

If u can search online for the car part number, and get a photo.
Then ask them to open BMW inventory system, type part number and it will show the details.
My 07M5 is rear spring strut.
Try online decoder it will help...
