Etihad/Alitalia mileage question help

Im looking at the below fare:
Rome to Abu Dhabi on Alitalia 7040 Business (I) OPERATED BY ETIHAD
Abu Dhabi to Johannesburg on Etihad 604 Business (W)
When I check "where to credit" it says Alitalia in I has 300% credit on EY, but when I went to the Etihad website it says that I earns 0% miles. Can anyone advise which one is correct please?
As the flight from FCO - AUH is operated by EY (but Alitalia number) and the next day the flight from AUH - JNB is on EY would I be able to request the free stopover package? Or must it be Etihad flight number?

Thanks for any help

If looking to credit to the Alitalia ffp you must look the Alitalia web site (not EY)
If looking to credit to the Etihad ffp you must look the Etihad web site (not AZ)
Earning on codeshares is problematic.
"where to credit" does not consider codeshares:- can be very complicated.
Some ffp's earnings are based on operating carrier/fare class and others on marketing carrier/fare class.
Fares class does not always map 1 to 1. Can be different (or the same) on the marketing & operating carrier .
