The huge advantage of the M button is that you control all 3 settings with one 'convenient' on/off button on the steering wheel.
I went to the online configurator and built an M3 with the MDrive package which comes with the MDrive button and the description says "Just one touch of the M Drive button on the steering wheel and all preselected settings are reactivated...". But without the EDC options, what exactly are those settings? There's no way to find out
