No.

The award bucket will be a non-earning fare bucket across all partner airlines.

I once got 2,000 BD miles when redeeming BD miles on a BEY-CAI sector on MS metal as part of a longer IST-BEY-CAI-JNB-CPT route. But this was a mistake.

This can certainly happen, especially in the case of IROPS - but it's not the norm.
