no idea if the K makes a difference, other than the rolling and plain bearing mention on the website
You could call and ask.

Why are you searching for this particular kind of lubricant, though? If it's that close, maybe they can give you a smaller size.

What is your app? One is a bearing grease and one is lubricating grease choose the one that best suits your app. Properties get changed for different apps. Bearing grease often has things in it that would make it less suitable for lubing say a slider, might bunch up. The opposite is true also lub grease does not like to bond to the roller in a bearing when underload.

BMW TIS says STABURAGS NBU 12 K, this is going on the ABS sensor itself not the bearing

Bearing grease has properties to keep it together(binds) that might be what they are looking for. Lubricating grease has properties to flow.
I never read the TIS when I replaced mine but used brake caliper lube which has great non creeping or binding properties. Clear/white stuff looks like vaseline.

Very similar to what I used. I think all you are trying to do is keep the dirt out. That stuff stays where you put it. You would not want your brake lube creeping to places it should not go.
Dirt and open space is what killed mine. Dirt then water got in and froze, crushed the sensor. Had to drill them out they were so stuck. They would have a list of all their common products and would choose the best properties even if it was over kill.
