Something I am unsure of in the UpgradeMe Option for an upcoming HKG to SYD flight (VA82)

My Virgin app tells me that the designated aircraft for this flight is an A330-200. The UpgradeMe offer page describes it more like the 737 Business Hard Product (as well as the accompanying photograph).

Business Class benefits include:
  • Priority Check-in, Priority Boarding and Priority Baggage delivery*
  • Access to the Virgin Australia lounge or partner lounges*^
  • Luxurious leather Business Class seat with generous recline and spacious legroom
  • Gourmet range of all-inclusive food and beverages from our Luke Mangan-designed menu
  • In-flight entertainment system, with a multi-channel range of movies, audio and TV
Any thoughts on what is going on here? Another flight in the same offer (for the 777) describes the business product as:

International long haul Business Class benefits include:
  • Priority Check-in, Priority Boarding and Priority Baggage Delivery (at selected airports)
  • Access to partner lounges*
  • Six-foot-two, fully horizontal, lie-flat seat
  • All-inclusive fine dining experience of gourmet meals and snacks and premium beverages
  • Award-winning in-flight entertainment system RED and noise-cancelling headset
  • Mood lighting to match the phases of the flight, a plush blanket and pillow and a comfortable sleep suit
  • Exclusive use of Business Class bar and toilets
