Regardless of the cabin , istr that AU regulations will require that you disembark in Bangkok

No, just outbound to SYD. There's no requirement for you to disembark the aircraft in BKK on the return sector back to DXB, although you can get off to stretch your legs if you so desire.

Many thanks to you.

Now out of pure curiosity, what is the point of this regulation?

Not quite sure. I did this route in Y in March. I assume it can be said its a check that the entire cabin was cleared of baggage and therefore all cabin baggage in the cabin had an owner. Same could be said for check in baggage as they can tag who has boarded the plane to SYD with who has luggage down in the deck.
