Registration has been recommended at least since the E90 (don't recall on my E46). I haven't swapped batteries yet so don't know for sure.

I have used the Carly app to register a battery on my E90, E82, and E84.
I asked my BMW tech about this and he told me it was not necessary. I will speak to another and check, I also sent a mail to Liteblox to see what they say.

If you can register it vith iCarly you simply do that.
