Such a dumb assumption. Nothing is changing drastically.

What has that got to do anything with overbooking? Here's how LY works, every Flight gets a certain amount of X (Business award) seats. Most cases of overbooking is when you booked X far out and later the flight sold out. For flights that you see space within 1-2weeks to departure date you won't get bumped as that flight is not full or else there would not be X available.

Up until now most elal flights I was on had empty seats no problem with overbooking  now they might start selling out all their x seats

its a fair assumption
that more X will be booked thru QF
and QF Avail will go down

and in turn if other flights get delayed bumped canceled etc.
you will in turn have more bumps

Qf has nothing to do how LY releases X. As explained upthread elal will first release X way ahead of time those are the ones to get bumped.  Because if you see 2 weeks before flight X 100% that flight won't be sold out (unless delays or can etc) or else there would be no X available.
