Plusgrade upgrades on AB and earnings

I just noticed that now AB also offers plusgrade upgrades (like many other airlines). Do we know if these actually change the booking class of the ticket and the point earnings? Has anybody used the system here? I am particularly interested in short haul.

Note: I am not talking about point upgrades, but the upgrades via bidding.

I've taken advantage of these upgrades via bidding twice, and the booking class remains the same as your original ticket. So you don't earn any extra miles for the upgrade. Actually, my first ever airberlin flight was AUH-TXL in business class thanks to this upgrade.

Thanks. This is good to know, even if not very useful (at least for short haul).
