Did VT or NSWGR or others in Australia use chalk to designate car destinations?

May have been done on an informal local basis, but NSW at least, but I don't recall it as a matter of routine.

Something NSW did do with chalk was write station names beside the doors of vans full of parcels on the mail trains.
This was done so porters would know where to find the parcels to be unloaded at their station.
