Go to your local bike shop and ask what they use when they put bolts into titanium frames. I have seen the stuff advertised in Nashbar and Performance. It's very high quality, because titanium and other alloy metals don't get along after a while.

It very well could be a silicone rubber based sealant similar to the material GE manufactures as caulk or Permetex packages for reassembly work. Sealants like that are used at the factory during original assembly and they replace using gaskets most times. And, if you were messing with the oil cooler, that would be a place that needs a sealant.
Anti-seize is great for bolts, but won't work as a sealant. You might ask *gasp* the parts department at the dealer.

I'm not familiar with the white paste, but perhaps Permatex Hylomar might be a substitute if the white stuff is non-hardening. Hylomar is kind of unique in the sealant world. Its not an RTV-type sealant, tacky adhesive, hardening goop, or anti-seize paste.
It seals well (although it doesn't look as though it should) and doesn't "cure" in use, or doesn't appear to. After many months in operation it appears to have the same physical characteristics it had right out of the tube.
I've had good luck with it for stuff like stubborn valve cover and radiator hose seepage where you want to fix the leak AND have easy separability/sealant removal when it comes time to dissasemble the parts.
I worked in an auto plant for a little over a year, and the sealer was applied to the body of a car after it had been dipped in the various anti-corrosion solutions.
It was applied over weld seams to keep moisture from getting between the sheets of metal. It is typically applied in beads along seams by robots, but there are also people with tiny spatulas and trowels ensuring that all the gaps are covered.
Then the paint is applied.
I suspect that the sealer would need to be re-applied after body work had been done, to prevent moisture from getting into the seams and rusting the body prematurely, and before the new panel is painted.
However I can't guarantee that the sealer that was initially referenced in this thread is intended for the same purpose.
