NL10 zoom / QJo / 'bluff-nuts-rake-catcher'?

Blinds: $0.05/$0.10 (6 Players) BN: $20.17
SB: $19.57
BB: $10.75
UTG: $13.57
MP: $10.00
CO: $21.10 (Hero)
BU total unk
Preflop ($0.15) Hero is CO with Q J
2 folds, Hero raises to $0.25, BN calls $0.25, SB folds, BB calls $0.15
standard open for me from the CO, nothing more to say
Flop ($0.80) 9 Q Q
BB checks, Hero bets $0.44, BN calls $0.44, BB folds
I was thinking about a sizing and I chose a smaller one. I don't want to build a huge pot here, because I am 200 deep, same as BU. He might have a better kicker here.
I want to generate a value but from the other side but I want to have some flexibility.
Turn ($1.68) 9 Q Q 9
Hero bets $1.09, BN calls $1.09
Ok, I have a nuts here (yea, 99) and I chose to bet 1,09 to get some calls from his weaker hands like 9x, maybe JJ/TT, Ax.
He made a snap call.
River ($3.86) 9 Q Q 9 T
Hero checks, BN bets $3.69, Hero calls $3.69
Because of my turn line, I am giving him an opportunity to bluff all of his weak range and if he has a Qx, then I have a split with lower rake.
IMO I have absolutely no value in betting my hand on the river.
Unk will call me here only with Qx and I saw a lot of people who love to jam Qx here and hope that I will act like a moron and call them with 9x and I hate to call to pay a rake for a pokersite, especially because we are deep and we can potentially pay here a lot.
It is NL10, so rake in bb/100 is really high and I like to avoid spots like these in a longrun.

Now the things are interesting and I want you guys to think about it and don't be a results-oriented.
Would you call his shove here?

When I saw his hand, I was laughing my ass off. I was thinking about this spot yesterday and I don't know what would I do if he just jammed instead.

What do you think?
Final Pot BN wins and shows a full house, Queens full of Tens.
BN wins $10.73
Rake is $0.51
