I'm no through hub expert but I would think that residue could leak at the front of the prop when not running.It surely isn't air tight where the prop hub meets the gearcase/exhaust area.I believe you might get extra residue if the bottom crankshaft seal was bad.But you would also probably have poor idle and possibly poor starting.
If the gearcase was leaking you would almost certainly have water in the gearcase.
If you have been idling a lot,tank testing would have more residue acclumulating.
