This is NOT 100% certain yet. However, don't make any redemption in the next couple of days via Iberia if you would have preferred to move them to BA and spend via BAEC instead, as it may still be possible.
Sad that now IB, which has been generous and mostly stuck to the terms, despite obvious and somewhat abusive behaviour, is now being extorted to go against a term that it not even in dispute, it was always clear that there was no transfer of Avios possible. This is why we can't have nice things
