My assumption is that the sensors themselves have significant calibration variations in manufacture...and hence require the electronics module AND a calibration/mapping procedure to be useful.

Hey, for all we know you are a Bosch Sensor design engineer and will let us all know an amazing and cheap solution.

“Hey guys, there is a way to recode the new sensors, all you need is a laptop, ice and boiling water, and ammonia- i wrote a program, download it here....”
