Default Full Floater Bearing Lubrication

Anyone have advice on lubrication direction:
1. Pack the floater bearings with wheel bearing grease. Use axle seals in the tubes to confine the axle grease to the housing.
2. No seals and let the rear end grease lube the bearings.

I've seen both directions but have pinged a number of experts/manufactures and seems most go with #2.... and don't fear the wheel bearings being starved in high speed/long corners.

I'm sending my rear end out for powder coating and need to remove the factory installed seals no matter which direction as they won't live up to the heat of powder coating but looking for advice moving forward from there.

Thanks in advance.
