Question why all the leaks

my rear wheel seem to have some oil drips coming from the plugs on the hub not the rubber boot. What might the problem be? [SIZE=3][FONT=Arial Black]

Howdy, Edward..
if there are "leaks" could be the previous owner just reused them rather than replacing them at the maintenance cycle.. make sure they are snug then replace at next opportunity.

If you are referring to the fill and drain plugs on the Final drive it is probably just the crush washers leaking on both. Just make sure that you replace both during the next Final drive service.
