BMWs have had this since they introduced electronic suspension adjustment a dozen or more years ago.

My 2014 Triumph Trophy SE had it!!!  My honda goldwing has it.    I want to know about the 2019 before ordering one.   When my 140 lb wife and luggage is on the back it sits low

I love the BMW also, but no electronic screen????  i find that weird.

I think that the semi-active suspension on the T12 is self-leveling (TSAS).

See here for more info (scroll down a bit):

My 2013 TEX has none - all manual adjustment.

I guess I am not understanding your question. TSAS is supposed to maintain a certain ride height. If you put more weight on it, then it automatically adds preload to bring it back to the preset ride height.

I think that the ride height and other parameters are also affected by the rider modes. For example, sport mode rides higher, off-road mode rides lower. And in the top line models, there is a rider configurable mode where you can set it up with customized settings.

TSAS does not keep the bike level.   He is saying 2019 we can select 1, 2 or luggage in the computer.  I don't believe him.
