Thank you all
At Cathay, the "2nd Officer" is a cruise pilot. I believe Cathay got rid of their Classic 747s, which required a FE. A friend of mine is a 2nd Officer on the A340 - He is a required member of the crew. From what I understand, he doesn't land or takeoff the airplane, he only does that in the sim (every 90 days to keep currency). I would imagine he logs the flight time.
I know that when I'm a member of a 3 or 4 man crew on the B767 (for a US Airline), but just the relief pilot, I log the entire flight as "total time". I don't log the landing because I didn't make it.
You might get a better response in the Foreign section of this site, there is some discussion of CX there.
