Some are market specific or due to regulations some such as this?

Wonder why these option are even here in the first place if they appear to not be offered as an option anywhere.

Would love to know the train of thought behind all of this from the bmw engineers
It might be a programming call. I'm sure they don't code every version of idrive from scratch. Instead, they add to the existing code. What legacy bits remain can be accessible via OBD coding. In other words, they're not adding anything, it's just what accumulates after many years of revisions/patches/upgrades.
