This depends upon sect & one's own interpretations. There are some yogic commentaries like of YogānanadaYogānanada's etc which interpret BG for yogis whereas some commentaries interpret the same text for 'devotees'. In fact, christian commentaries are also now available in the market now. So, it's wrong to cover BG in single blanket.

And Even that verse of 'Sharnagati' doesn't make it globally sectarian. For example, Kashmiri Shaiva enlightened mystic Abhinavgupta at the end of BG referring the verse you detailed, comments

Whatever action might be performed by a Yogin - who has freed his mind dominated by the three gunas, which are the nature of knowledge, ,confusion & inertia, and who has attained Vishnu, who is beyond thought, through the beauty of realization of his own self - the action is performed effortlessly because he is engaged only in such activities of the sense organs, which arise in him on their own. To such a Yogin Siva is everything.

But one should also note that the mystic Abhinavgupta neither wrote commentary to maintain vedAntic conformity (although he was initiated in vedAnta as well) nor to impose Shaivite agenda but rather he wrote as a personal gift for his VaishNava friend Bhatta NarayaNa on the later's request. But due to its unique esoteric/tantrik eloquence the commentary became famous.
