I couldn't find a newfs_udf on 6.0, although there is a userspace
implementation called UDFclient:

As I understand it, UDF is an extension of ISO9660. An explanation of
UDF can be found here:

Dvd+rw-tools uses ISO9660, not UDF.

Using dvd+rw-tools for burning backups on single-layer (4GB) disks works
fine. You don't really need UDF for that.
