...are the dreaded flexing noises heard in the rear of the car only experienced by those of us with rear pass-through (that is, fold-down rear seats)?

I have rear pass-through...it's standard equip in Canada. Speak out - this may well be the culprit!

P.S. if you've installed a rear strut brace, has it eliminated the noise?

Thanks,
Alps

I asked this many moons ago and I think it was even MORE prevalent with the non-fold-down seat.

I have the fold down seats, and no creaking or squeaking. I also read a thread somewhere that suggested this was a minor adjustment and the BMW service folks should know how to do it - i.e., I suspect there has been a service bulletin on it.

In the middle seat post on the rear parcel shelf, put a few drops of Triflow on the post. The squeak should go away.
