Re: when we use bvi on access point

The BVI is your management IP address and the IP address is placed there to identify that is part of your current subnet.

The physical interfaces have the bridge-group commands to forward traffic from the wired network to the wireless network and vice-versa.

What place do you suggest placing the management IP address ? Think of the BVI the same way as the SVI on a 2950 switch.
