United Operated by ANA Flights Points Question

Hey Guys,

This may be a rookie question, but this is the first time I've ever had to deal with this situation before. Tried searching but couldn't find anything because I suck at searching.

If I book a UA flight but operated by NH, using my Diamond mileage number, would I accrue the points as I would with an NH flight operated by NH? (e.g. Accruing ANA premium points as an ANA-group-operated flight) Or would it be considered earning points as a Star Alliance partner regardless if I'm on an ANA plane? I'm assuming the latter but I'm hoping for a confirmation that I'm wrong . Thanks in advance !

ANA mileage accrual scheme is based on operating carriers.
Your UA flight number (operated by ANA) is earned at ANA's mileage accrual rate.

However, this involves magic conversion.
UA booking class XXX is converted ANA booking class YYY (not published).
Then, credited as ANA's YYY.

In my SA flight case,
SA7134 HKG to HND booking class M
converted to
NH1172 booking class U
1823 miles x 0.7 x 1.5(Asia zone) = 1914 PP was earned.
