It depends on the airline and the regulatory authority.
This is how it works at my airline: On a 4 crew ULR flight, one crew will be the operating crew and the other will be the augmenting crew. The operating crew gets credit for the full flight, chocks off to chocks on. The augmenting crew only gets credit for the time actually sitting in the operating seats. On the return leg, this reverses.
Eg a 12 hour flight. Operating crew logs 12 hours on the way out, augmenting crew logs about 5:30. On the return its the other way around. So about 18 hours each logged over a total of about 24 hours.
