On the passenger side of a YJ's HPD30, the axle seal is located on the outer side of the vacuum disc housing.
Yes, the vacuum disco gets it's lubrication from the diff fluid.
The parts guy is mistaken. He's probably thinking about other types of D30 housings which do have the passenger side axle seal internal to the housing.
