So BMW mistakenly replaced a plastic rivet with a steel bolt during assembly, confirmed that it could cause excessive ABS module vibration at higher engine speeds, then created a Service Bulletin to remove the steel bolt and replace the plastic rivet.

Where in that does it specifically say anything about planned obsolescence?

These sorts of Service Bulletins happen all the time, to pretty much all vehicle manufacturers. In fact, an SB is the official BMW mechanism for solving these types of issues at their own cost once they're noted and confirmed.

BMW is far from perfect, to be sure (just check out my avatar). But this is really much simpler than you think it is.
