But for a BMW with hard paint and a decent amount of swirling, a more aggressive designated polish is more appropriate?

The abrasives in "proper" polishes designed for correcting paint tend to be made of aluminium oxide as it is very, very hard.

Paint cleaners tend to be either very fine versions of aluminium oxide or a softer mineral that when used on clear coat will really only act to clean muck out of the micro-texture of the paint. I tend to think of it like using Cif on a steel saucepan. I'm not really going to get rid of any scratches but it should clean it up!

On softer paints, as has been said earlier in the thread they can tackle fine marks etc; with hard paint you'll get a cleaning effect (still very worthwhile!) and in the case of LP, a "glazing" effect from the oils that can temporarily reduce the appearance of the finer swirls. Waxing over the top will give this effect a bit more durability. However for a permanent improvement you will need a more robust cutting effect as suspal mentions.
