I'm certain the Electrosport stator is not encapsulated either ..........
but from the picture on their website it does seem to be different in design details!
Not sure how BMW's supplier does it, but the company I worked for at one time, did it under vacuum in order to get full "impregnation" (not motorcycle stators ... transformers) .. which is expensive..............
