I respectfully disagree.

In case this is the culprit though, the new seals will rapidly disintegrate within a month or so, operating in the damaged cylinder surface. These cylinders are colored with a hard paint. When this gets damaged, the seal gets eaten and leaks. The cylinder then needs replacement. I had good luck resleeving this with stainless steel sleeve and going down in diameter. I used lighter KTM bikes' clutch piston. The effect is holding nicely till now.
