Brake fluid part of free maintenance program?

Just got a warning light telling me to schedule an app for it.
Is this included in the free maintenance program?
Why the fluid change already when the car is 2011 with 26k?
Still under warranty.

Answering my own question.
Yes, it is included in the free maintenance program.

a brake fluid flush is always recommended every 2 years regardless of mileage. the reason is that over time the fluid can absorb moisture from the air, which lowers the boiling point and can increase the risk of the fluid boiling over and losing brake pressure if you do repetitive hard braking.

Yes, it is part of condition-based service (in the iDrive). It gets changed every 2 years regardless of mileage.
