Mileage Earning on BA issued ticket without BA flight number

Does anyone know if a BA issued ticket on flights without a BA flight number, will it earn Avios based on the BA chart (e.g. elite bonus and so on)?

Who issues the ticket makes no difference; it is based on marketing carrier for each flight subject to eligible operating carrier (any carrier if BA marketed, OW operated if other OW marketed)

Who is actually operating and marketing your flights?

If your booking shows with a BA flight number, or something like "AY123 sold as BA7321", then the BA chart applies. 125 tickets generally end up in codeshares rather than prime if the choice exists, as very general rule.

If a flight is "BA marketed", that means that you have been booked on the BA flight number even if it is operated by another airline.

So if you have a ticket for a flight "without a BA flight number", that flight cannot be "BA marketed".

By using the numbers under which your flights have been sold to you, you can look up the avios and TP you will earn here:
