2000 F350 4x4 front axel dust seal/shield

to this Forum, but not a newbie for car repairs

Got a buddy's broke down Ford in my driveway. Repairing his axel hub bearings seals...blah, blah, front end stuff.

QUESTION: The inner dust shield [part number BRS-84] that is pressed on the axel shaft seal, by being pressed on the axel shaft itself --- this is one sealing point where does the outside diameter or face seal on the axel tube??? Put another way...the dust shield is fixed to the axel, the axel spins where does the dust shield ride?

The end of the axel housing is all scaly and rusty - is a seal expected to seal on there and last??? SERIOUSLY.....is it due to a cheap seal or is there something else that should be there or is this just chalked up as a faulty design???

I have seen in everyone's posts that I have looked at and researched and no one has addressed this issue.

I am waiting for my $204.00 each Timken hub bearings to arrive from Parts Geek.

Thanks for any and all thoughts, ideas and this sight is better than a service manual!

Though I would add a couple of pictures for clarification about what I am asking.
