There is a trip report by VolvoMike on Flyertalk stating he flew a non-refurbished A380 in F on Qantas on 2/5/22
I thought they were only using the ones that had the makeover?

The unrefurbished VH-OQB had been doing the SYD-LAX sector for some months, but departed for Abu Dhabi on 10th May for maintenance or refurbishment. The route is currently being done by the refurbished OQD & OQK aircraft.
Two more refurbed A380s have recently come out of storage from Victorville to be used on QF1/2 from 19th June.

The Qantas operation across the Pacific right now is a mess. Old unrefurbished A380, last minute schedule changes (a friends LA-SYD was retime to 0930!!) and A330 aircraft without adequate crew rests.
For consistent product you have to fly Delta or United.

American, United and Delta are consistent for their inconsistencies. Dreadful or amazing, take your pick.
