And redo that when it comes back? What to do if there are fern/moss on it?

I wonder how those super clean and beautiful woods with moss in those
"hi-fashion" tanks are maintained. Or BBA can't grow in those super-balanced tanks?

In short, is it possible to prevent BBA growing on woods?

There are guidelines for BBA on plants but I've never seen one
for woods or hardscape.
