The J seats don't look like lie-flat 180°. Much more like 170°. I could be wrong, but both seats shown in the picture look like fully reclined and there is a slope visible IMO.
If that is the case I congratulate them to introducing a J seat other airlines opted for 10 years ago and are on the way out on most airlines. (If 180° lie-flat I am taking that back and really congratulate them. Like a politician, you know... ^^)

You are probably right - on the ground. But in flight with a slight nose up attitude they will be fully flat.

Forgot to add, before anyone asks, that these new interiors will only be found on the new A330s as well as in the entire A340-600 fleet (the 346s starting to be retrofitted in May, according to Iberia).
The 340-300s that will remain in the fleet will not recieve the new interiors unless Iberia's management change their decision at a later stage.
Also, mood lighting on both new and retrofitted aircraft is initially going to be installed in business class cabins only.
