Covering the CV in grease is all good..stops the rusting as you've said. But the gasket on the stub axle is a bad idea. There ain't one on there for a reason..it's not a sealed compartment and the mating surfaces need to be clean so the stub torques up nice and tight onto the knuckle. Sorry you got that advice on here but always be wary of armchair experts on the internet, bad advice often goes viral when the bandwagoners regurgitate it. But that shouldn't be your prob as the axle should come out with the stub anyway. I agree with chopped it's probably just grease.
