Some people like to remove the seal and re-grease the sealed bearing. If you bought quality bearings, it shouldn't be a problem.

I pack grease between the wheel seal and the bearing ( not the bearing seal), which is added protection from water getting into the bearing

Wheel bearing seals and the like should always be greased. If run dry, they will wear rapidly.

I don't know why I didn't read it that way the first time around. It was all clear the second time. :thumbsup:
Anyway, yes, I would/do grease the seal.
