Partner flights count towards lifetime status?

I do a bunch of flights outside of the US and it annoys me that I get no lifetime benefit on UA. I was thinking of moving those to skyteam partners. do i get lifteime miles for partner flights? most are booked into Y which i noticed when it posted, i got like 125% EQM which was kind of nice.

Million Miler qualification is based on total Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) earned over a member's lifetime.

Some partner flights earn full MQMs while other partners earn nothing unless they're booked under a DL codeshare flight number.
