How would I check if the seal is recessed? There should be almost no gap between freehub and hub body. Also, since locking hubs generally do not require a key to operate, they can be maliciously locked or unlocked by persons other than the vehicle owner.

When the front hubs are locked, even if no power is sent to the front axle by means of a transfer casethe turning of the wheels will still spin the front axle, differential, and driveshaft, manuql puts extra load on the engine. And the freehub is as close to the hub body as it was possible. And that is in place.
