Good spot for check/calling badugi AA OOP?

Blinds: $0.50/$1.00 (6 Players) CO: $113.95
BN: $119.33
SB: $93.25
BB: $100.00 (Hero)
UTG: $81.50
MP: $127.20
No significant read on UTG. Feel free to read into population (Ignition) and stack size.
Preflop ($1.50) Hero is BB with K A 4 A
UTG raises to $3.00, 4 folds, Hero calls $2.00
I've been playing with not having a 3betting range in the BB when I'm closing the action heads-up. And I've also been flatting badugi AA more often than not. So I just called here.
Flop ($6.50) 6 6 J
Hero checks, UTG bets $3.25, Hero calls $3.25
UTG shouldn't have a ton of 6xxx. JJ sometimes, but folding seems too tight.
Turn ($13.00) 6 6 J T
Hero checks, UTG checks
I planned to check/call again. Realistically, I'm not losing super often, but I think I end up overrepped or value-cutting if I bet out myself.
River ($13.00) 6 6 J T 2
Hero checks, UTG bets $6.50, Hero calls $6.50
Pretty innocuous runout. Check/call.

Does this seem like the most +EV line for this hand? Betting out just never seemed attractive to me, but maybe I was wrong.

I'd also be happy to discuss my lack of 3betting here. I've just decided recently that there's way more value in keeping the pot small OOP and protecting my calling range than there is in trying to push a little bit of equity preflop, when the flop dictates so much of how I can continue anyway.
