Not totally up to speed on 330 quirks, but 2 airlines I am aware of supply nose gear downlock pins attached to steering bypass pins to their 330 line mx providers.
There's probably a reason?

suggests that a few A330 operators use a belt-and-braces approach where the NLG downlock pin is used on pushback, as well as its normal use for towing and landing gear maintenance, in which case I suppose it makes sense to keep the gear pin and steering lockout pin together.
