From what I was told by Porsche factory trainers years ago:

by the early '60s, the factory became convinced that far more wheel bearings and suspension joints were being ruined by dirt which got in during sloppy repacking/lubricating than would ever get past a good set of state of the art seals, so they abandoned grease fittings and scheduled wheel bearing repacking (apart from brake overhauls) and increased the typical logevity of the relevant parts immensely by so doing.
