First Oil Change Mileage

Just curious why the M5 warrants the first oil change after 1200 miles and the M550i, isn'tuntil 10K?

Garage List
all the "M" car has this special break in procedure at 1200 miles, while all other model are at 1 year/10k which ever is sooner. Do they change oil at 1200 miles or more of a "take a look"?

Isn't the oil in the Ms effectively not as good (not sure what the technical term is" so that there is deliberate some ware so they all bed in. After 1200 miles they then put in proper oil.
