Technically true for the promo, but buying airplane tickets you don't plan on using is against the ToC of nearly all airlines.
Hard to prove that you donít plan to use it, especially before you have an opportunity to use it.

Tell that to an audit team or the people who got banned for buying AA tickets they weren't planning on using.
The airlines don't need a burden of proof to do what they want.

This is basically the same idea of hidden city - you're getting more value from the airline by not flying then by flying. Airlines tend to not like people who do that.

https://loyaltylobby.com/2018/06/22/statement-from-iberia-plus-regarding-the-90000-bonus-avios-promo/  ?

Is there any perk to transfering IB Avious to BA? I always thought Iberia was the better program due to the lower fuel surcharges.

Many perks for both ways. See DDMS posts.
