As you have figured out, "OE Supplier" is a brand name, not a description of who they are or who they sell to.
They fit well, but they are thinner material and not as well colored. The red and amber both are more transparent than real OEM lenses.

Yeah, I found those too. I got pulled away from my computer and when I came back the next day, they had a "price change". I am seeing $136.80.

AutohausAZ has them for $114.86.

Those OE supplier ones are the Hella brand and are exactly the same as the BMW/Hella ones except the roundel has been ground off and polished where it was.

Not the "OE Supplier" ones we got. No place where the roundel was ground off/polished. And a genuine set of Hellas with the logo was substantially thicker/heavier and darker color. We sent them back and got a refund. Maybe the seller has changed suppliers.

There was only one OE supplier for these and that was Hella. There may have been other OEM or OEM equivalent suppliers that offered replacements but I am not aware of any but that again does not mean they were not present.

All of the Hella lights and lenses that I have here, whether they were sold as original equipment BMW factory parts or OE replacements, are the same quality as what was supplied when the cars were new. I guess the parts in question need to be verified as to the actual brand of mfg.

I have also noticed that many of the actual BMW factory parts are no longer of the same quality as the original parts supplied with our vehicles. The replacement fuse box covers from BMW are worthless junk!
