Thank you Boris, it seems like the inability to pick your flow in the Particle rollout is indeed a bug.

In the meantime, you can choose "include this flow's particles" and use a Birth Flow and Flow Update operator to bring tflow01 particles into tflow02.

Then set your VDB Modify operator to continuous, enable UVWs in the VDB to Mesh operator and you should get the result you want.

Attached is the fixed file.
