Steel used to be lacquer coated, but it isn't any more, it's polymer coated. The only ammo I know of that's still lacquer coated is Brown Bear. The problem isn't with lacquer getting into the BCG, it supposedly builds up in the chamber.
The only time I've ever seen it present a problem is when you load a round in a HOT chamber that has had quite a few lacquer coated rounds through it, then leave the round in there until the chamber cools off. This causes the lacquer to somewhat soften, the re-harden and adhere to the chamber wall, thus causing a problem.
I personally shoot Wolf, and have no worries about it having any negative effects on my rifle. It's a good cheap ammo to use for training and plinking purposes, but I wouldn't recommend using it for self defense.
