I think the only reason BMW did not include the M mirror caps on the X7 w/M-Sport package is because it is not a "true M-car" like the others I mentioned - not even the M50.

This is BMW's way of keeping some distinction between M and non-M models I guess. Although, the M badge (or M performance badge) is more marketing now than it used to be in previous BMW generations…
Front bumper and rear bumper of the ///M model are more aggressive (different) then the M-Sport models as you know and thus the addition of aggressive styled side mirrors. Maybe a gloss black mirror could add distinction to the MSport models. Audi does this with their SQ models with black optics.
