'84 300D AC low pressure valve

Is it possible for freon to leak out of the back of the valve? Where the electrical connectors are?

My AC system was low on pressure when I bought the car. I had it recharged and dyed. The only place I see anything that could even be the dye is right at the edge of the electrical connectors. Even plastic boots on the connectors is dyed.

Has anyone seen a leak like this?

I tried to take a picture but my camera aparently doesn't 'see' UV well. It just looked all blue.
