Traction control saved you from an embarrassing insurance claim

does the traction control explain the knock sound when I pushed the gas?

That could've been the sound of your wheels losing power and coming suddenly to a stop as the traction control kicked in.

Is this your first BMW, and if so, how long have you owned it?

Traction control cuts power, can provoke driveline lash, that's noisy.
