Default Large unmarked jet at YSSY Gate 34 Monday

Does anyone know what the totally unmarked white passenger jet at Gate 34 of YSSY on Monday night was?

A friend was due to fly out of Gate 34 bound for New Zealand that night (31 July), but he was re-directed to depart from Gate 37 when the unmarked jet showed up.

The white jet had many windows, so it was probably a passenger aircraft rather than cargo. It also lights on inside (but no passengers) and had absolutely zero signage anywhere on the livery.

Sounds like the A330 used for army troop movements, I can't remember who runs it?

Not showing to be in Sydney on Monday night, though here's another regular unmarked visitor A340-313 CS-TQY.

June is an odd callsign.

I've not seen US military jets use the gates at international before...

Good point, not often they do, maybe an occupant wanted to grab some duty free, or border force didn't have a team free to do onboard clearance?
