Where is it leaking from?

It could be several reasons - seals, tube rotated in the diff, vent, cracked tube, breather block, diff cover seal, rubber diff cover plug etc.

The D35's do this. It is to let you know your D35 is being lubricated properly. If it quits leaking then you need to add more into the hole with the blue stripe. Please note my sarcasm. The pavement where I park at my apartment is as black as the day it was paved due to this.

that's the factory plug. its a rubber plug that is just pressed into the dif cover.

the blue paint mark makes me wander if it has recently been serviced, and possibly overfilled?

That baby needs to have some degreaser sprayed on it & cleaned off.
