Business class on JL international flights books into C, D, J, X class while 'discount business' books into 'I' class, as per the JL website.
According to the Qantas Points Table for JL, 'I' class does indeed earn at 'standard economy' rates, which is 15 SCs from MEL-NRT and NRT-SYD.
Unfortunately, if your original itinerary/ticket says the JL flights were booked in 'I' class, then it appears the status credits earn is correct with Qantas (and I agree, that's very unusual and somewhat deceptive).
