I happen to work at SUSE. And while you're right that SLE-12:GA is on gcc
4.8.x, SLE-12 doesn't have openjdk-9 or openjdk-10 or even -11 in its
update repositories (looking at the internal SUSE build system at the moment).

openjdk-9 is part of SLE-15:GA which itself ships gcc-7.

So, what exactly is the usecase for OpenJDK-9, 10 and 11?
