I had a hard time seeing the effect you are talking about in the long exposure shot but it is more noticeable in the second shot you posted. It kind of looks like a very faded jet contrail in the picture.

If it were me I would take some identical(ish) sky shots with the Tamron and another lens then compare the two. If they both have the faint diagonal light stripe then I would suspect the camera. If only the Tamron does this then I would expect the lens. Maybe the lens has an internal reflection that is causing this light streak?

None of the similar photos taken with my Sony 16-35mm GM had this problem. But not all of the photos taken with the Tamron had this problem either. What issue with the lens or camera could cause this? Would internal reflections really create these lines? It's not just the one line--there are several around it. Some are dark and others are light, as if someone brushed straight diagonal lines in the sky and changed the exposure on them.
