Square Kou and his Not-So-Square Uncle

Number Theory Level pending

A 3 digit number have its square made up by just 3 non-zero distinct digits. Kouhan told his Uncle Ren(zoku) about the number and its property to impress him, but to his surprise, Uncle Ren one-up him by multiplying that square to a 2 digit number and have the answer to have the exact same digits (and the number of those digits too) as they were in Kouhan's square, plus 2 zeros.

What is the palindromic difference between the 3-digit and 2-digit numbers?

Notes : As there are multiple possible answers, the intended one read the same from the back. Special thanks to Paul Hindess for his help and advice in making a better question in every aspect (mathematical and the language part, too).
