Something does not work properly.
Are any related messages to see in the output of dmesg ?

What did you try and what did it report when it failed ?
(We could get a log of SCSI commands from xorriso by
command -scsi_log on .)

If you use -force without "=full" then you get sub-type 3.
if (full && (formats[i+4+4]>>2)!=0x31)
formats[i+4+4] |= 2;// "Full Certificaton"
else if ((formats[i+4+4]>>2)==0x30)
formats[i+4+4] |= 3;// "Quick Certification"
But i do not see the formatting state of the medium as the cause
of your problems.

Something is wrong deep in the kernel or in the hardware.
A BD-RE should be writable at least for the superuser.
But how does this match your report that it fails on another
system too ?
Can you read raw data from the medium ?
dd if=/dev/sr0 bs=2048 count=16 | wc
Have a nice day :)
