Some "transfer" of material is "normal". As the clutch material wears off you'll have some in the bell housing...like a dust. As the pressure plate breaks in, material is transferred to it from the clutch plate. There will also be material on the flywheel (that the pressure plate bolts to).
The felt is to help oil that seeps to transfer to the sides of the opening rather than "creep" down the shaft to the clutch... better to leak down the inside than get on the clutch... but, alas, eventually it will probably get to the clutch if it leaks enough... or if enough is slung around in the housing...
