There is indeed oil being held in by the main seal and by the o ring. You would be able to see the oil leaking out of the seal when you take the wheel off. The o ring would leak around the two halves. My bearing didnt seem bad either, but tit was a bit loose. Be sure to lube the oring up and where it slips on. I used vaseline.
