Comment (by boonebgorges):

 BuddyPress uses `wp_upload_dir()` to determine the upload path for images,
 and uses `wp_handle_upload()` to handle the upload process itself. I
 *believe* that, as a result, media management plugins like those that
 integrate with S3 should automatically work with BuddyPress uploads.

 This is not the same thing as integration with the Media Library
 interface. Among other things, WordPress uses post objects with the
 post_type 'attachment' to display content in the Media Library. I'm not
 sure whether this is desirable for BuddyPress content.

 I bet imath will have something more to say about this.
