Modern oils don't really account for non-roller cams as they once did. Is the cam lobe getting wiped out an issue on the M62?

I have been looking at other threads as well. This one mentions the check valve between block and cylinder head clogging causing the issue..

That threat turquise1 posted, is a classic issue from overly complicated machinery.

$12 check valve.

On that note, the double Vanos phases both cams, bug can it change the lobe separation angle?
