Lucklucky, I'm not sure what you mean, but only because I'm not so technically literate on ship hull types. Is it the destroyer numbered 132?

About 1,000 personnel from minesweeper mothership JS Uraga, 16 other minesweepers, and two or three MCH-101s of the JMSDF conducted joint-training with a minesweeper and two MH-53Es from the USN and two minesweepers from the RAN in the Sea of Hyuga from November 18th to November 28th.

JasonJ maybe i did not explained correctly. Several Japanese ships of WW2 had a undulating deck line.

Myoko, Takao cruiser classes, Yamato itself. It seems the idea originated with Yubari experimental light cruiser and it is a tactic to cut weight.

I still don't quite understanding about different hull types. Sounds archaic to still use the same hull type. Although emphasis on keeping weight down is a common thing in Japanese stuff, even now, sometimes they do it too much I think.

See the undulated deck level? with a long drop towards stern.

Ah that's what is meant by undulated. What about the Burke? It goes down past the heli hanger but picks up again at the very rear. Is that called something else?

Somewhat yes depends on how much you want to extend the definition, if it dropped again would certainly be. .  Undulated come from wave, it actually a word that is more understandable in Portuguese since ondulação(undulated) came from onda(wave).

 

Undulation (from dictionary.com):
 
to move with a sinuous or wavelike motion; display a smooth rising-and-falling or side-to-side alternation of movement: The flag undulates in the breeze.
to have a wavy form or surface; bend with successive curves in alternate directions.
(of a sound) to rise and fall in pitch: the wail of a siren undulating in the distance.
verb (used with object), un·du·lat·ed, un·du·lat·ing.
to cause to move in waves.
to give a wavy form to.
