Plus, why would BMW even bother given autocross events are not all that hard on your M? If BMW starts going after people who enjoy their Ms in a responsible manner at an autocross, I would never buy a BMW again. I doubt they will do such a thing though.
One of the local dealers is actually a cosponsor of the BMWCCA autocrosses. In all my decades of autocross I've never had a breakdown related to AX, so I guess the risk is low. After all, we're not talking about Nissan or Sabaru here.
