The 777F is a 777-200 sale, not a 772LR sale.
I don't understand where you're going with this. Both the 772LR pax and 777F are 772A derivatives. The 777F is a 772LR derivative. The freighter is based on the passenger version and would not have been developed without it. The same is true for the A300-600RF, the A380F, the 744ERF, and every other commercial freighter.
Boeing's internal accounting will measure the financial success of the 772LR program based on the revenue and net income brought in by airframes sold, counting both the passenger and freighter models. The only distinction will be whether the freighter version recoups the marginal costs of its own production and certification process, which will not take many frames to achieve. Since financial success is really the only criterion that matters, any other arguments about how 777F sales should be counted are hairsplitting.
