CBS Oil change ... Annual?

My E39 (and the E46) had a simplified version of Condition Based Service, BUT the mileage required (typically 15-16.5K) was overridden by a BMW maintenance requirement to change the oil annually, regardless of service indicator or mileage.

Is this no longer true for E9x? My CBS is indicating about 19K total miles till the first oil change (miles to go + odometer), which will occur around 19 months total service. I was hoping to have 3-4 oil changes on BMW's nickel, with a change at my cost in between theirs (conservative I know).
