I'm not sure what you mean by this? Swiss / Star Alliance always go by operating carrier and not marketing carrier for mileage calculation. Btw, you can always change the FF number at the point of OLCI or at the airport - you don't need to stick with what was entered at the point of booking
It's been so long I forget why we had to do it that way, but we had to use two different mileage programs because of the airlines that operated the flights - even though all are Star Alliance members or partners. We couldn't simply put everything on Miles n More.

And as you mention, we changed the FF numbers at the airport. Point was, people who don't fly often or don't belong to multiple programs could miss out on points. This was a long-haul, so worth a few thousand points. Then again, I guess those who don't fly much would lose the points anyway after a certain amount of time.

One interesting bit to note - the way the site did the booking made it hard to collect frequent flier points with just one program.
I had a similar issue. The flight booked was with Swiss but I have miles card of another Star Alliance member. A number of websites accepts only Swiss miles&more so have to show the card at the check-in.

If you send an email over to Swiss after making the booking, they will happily add the card details of your prefered Star Alliance airline.

I have several cards, but that's purely an occupational hazard of working in the industry for the last decade. I always ask Swiss to credit the points to my Aegean Miles + Bonus card because OH's family live there, so it's the airline we try to use the most. Swiss have been great at adding the points and usually reply to the email request within 48hrs to confirm it's ben actioned.
