Headlight error message

So I hit a pothole last night and my left headlight dropped to covering only 6' of the road in front of the car. Then a few minutes later, both headlights stopped moving when cornering. Then a few minutes later I got a headlight error message.

I brought it in to the dealership today and after a few hours was told there was a soft code of a headlight malfunction but that it had gone away and there was no physical problem with the headlights.

I trust my dealership and they've always been great to me, I'm just curious how this is possible. Do BMWs self-heal or something?
