Hi fellow ABPN exam crammers...Is anyone else using Board Vitals and noticing the questions are DSM 5-based? I.e. Disinhibited Social Engagement Disorder is showing up? I thought the September 2015 exam won't include new DSM 5 diagnoses?!

I think this was an issue last year, too. It popping up on BV doesn't mean your exam is not DSM neutral, which I'm pretty sure you're right about. Definitely submit feedback to them about those questions, too -- I found they were pretty good about addressing feedback. Stuff like this only serves to heighten anxiety.
