Yes, they do but only for top selling models and usually upon mutual agreement from BMW and the mobile mfr.

This is not a problem. If there is no connector for an external aerial, the mobile will not lose the signal since it won´t know any better. If won´t benefit from the external aerial of course, but it won´t lose anything either.
Freude am Fahren.
