A stuck pump usually takes some time to occur. Stuck injectors will happen on the tank of fuel that is nasty, or over the next few at latest.

It's not a mileage thing but is sometimes a time thing, and the less mileage the bike has over time the more likely fuel system damage is to occur.

To try and keep injectors from sticking on bikes in dealer inventory, tanks are filed to the bottom of the filler neck, BMW techron is added, and bikes are stored in a temperature controlled showroom, but it still happens occasionally occasionally when the bikes are prepared for delivery with only 15 miles on them.
