Strange ECU

Put my G30 530i in to get an ECU retune.
Apparently my car has a different ECU than the usual G30.
Now some company in Italy is writing a program to access my ECU as no existing software is compatible with my ECU.

Has anyone got any info on why my car would have a different ECU?
Why would BMW make a small amount of cars differently?

Is it newish? Presumably just part of evolving the car. They make software changes recently so why not to a ecu? Possibly for latest emissions regulations?
