This is correct. If you're looking to farm battle-stones for upgrading quality, your best bet is to stick with the "old world" trainers (Pandaria, Outland, etc.)
The trainer dailies in Draenor award the same amount of pet experience, but they don't reward a bag with battle-stones inside. You do receive some Pet Charms that you can use to purchase stones from the vendor at your Menagerie, though. She sells both the leveling stone and quality stone. Last I checked, the quality stone was pretty pricey, though (10 Pet Charms IIRC??).
The level 3 garrison daily *does* reward a bag, but I never saw a battle-stone to upgrade pet quality drop from it. Only the leveling stones.
