I'm not sure I follow the question. As I understand an ESP32, it is an MCU and also an IC (Integrated Circuit). Built into the ESP32 is the ability to generate and receive radio signals. These signals are then modulated by the ESP32 to achieve the protocols known as WiFi and Bluetooth. While this is a crazy simplistic model of the world ... if it is "good enough" ... then the only hardware component necessary for BLE is the ESP32 IC itself.

Are you perhaps thinking about PCB layout to extend or create an antenna? Other than that I might say that there are no hardware components other than the ESP32 itself needed for BLE. Maybe you could post back with some further clarification?
