The most recent M car to get the LCI was the X5 M and the M version got it one year later than the normal version.
Yes I know...and I don't believe there will be any changes to the engine or performance.

But look at the E60 M5... It got the updated LED tail lights and headlights (without the orange reflector in them) as well as some minor changes on the centre console of the dash. I think we will see similiar changes for the M5 LCI. We can also look at the E92 M3 LCI, it kept the exact same headlights from the non LCI model (just like the E46 M3 did), but the E92 M3 LCI did get the new updated LED tails!

I would say that is a fair and reasonable speculation/assumption...but only time will tell
