The bf:Work does not contain the FRBR:Expression, it links to it. The FRBR:Expression is another BF:Work with a few extra properties like language that make it a FRBR:Expression.
If a BIBFRAME Work can have an Expression, where is that Expression? To "have" it, the Expression needs to have a separate URI, which means that it has to be a "thing" -- it has to be its own circle in the diagram. But there is no Expression circle in the diagram.
I had understood that the FRBR-type elements for Work and Expression were both to be entered into the BIBFRAME Work, and the examples seem to show that. I'm going to assume that "hasExpression" is not usable, but has not been removed from the documentation.

As I understand it, a BIBFRAME Work can be both a FRBR Work and a FRBR Expression. The BIBFRAME vocab for Work defines both expressionOf and hasExpression properties so one BIBFRAME Work could be an expression of another BIBFRAME Work.
