not necessarily.
these things tend to evolve with time.

SWB or LWBwheelbase?

for instance, a lwb would have had an extension welded on the business end of a swb swingarm till BMW ran out of swb swingarms to modify.
Once the parts supply caught up with the drawing change, the extension would no longer have the appearance of an afterthought.
