Qantas - Qantas Frequent Flyer

I've just booked a Qantas domestic business flight from BNE to MEL (QF flight number), using Emirates points. When I login to "Manage my booking", there is a large box prominently displayed at the top of the page with: "Let us drive you to and from the airport for free.", followed by a red "Book now" button, with my booking reference number directly below it. When I select the "Book now" button, it gives options to book a car for drop-off at Brisbane DOMESTIC airport (at least three hours prior to departure); and another for pick-up from Melbourne DOMESTIC airport. To the right of each Chauffeur-drive booking option it states: "Mileage restriction: Within 60 driven kms of ["Brisbane" or "Melbourne"] International Airport". and "Notes: Itineraries which are exclusively between Australia and New Zealand are not eligible for Chauffeur-drive."
Surely this is an Emirates error - a Qantas DOMESTIC business flight booked using Emirates points (or in fact any other payment type), should not offer a complimentary Chauffeur-drive?

It should not. Would be interested to see what happens if you book them!

I find Queensland is like a separate country so maybe Emirates recognise that
