Should this grease be here?????

I'm in the process of pulling the front suspension apart on the 560SEL a suspension overhaul and found something that just doesn't look right. When I pulled the rotors I found the ABS pick-up sensor and the trough in the backing plate to be packed with bearing grease. The toothed ring on the rotor was packed as well.

I can't tell yet if the inner seal is leaking grease into the area or if the last person to work on front end purposely packed the area with grease. I spent a while last night looking through the manual but couldn't find anything regarding grease v. dry and the antilock sensor.

Should this grease be here?
