If the hole is about 5/8 or so big, its for a deep well socket to line up with the 4 backing plate bolts. No need to seal it

trust me there is a need to seal it. if i am not on the road i am in the mud, and i don't want my brakes packed with mud. i can rech the backing plate bolts with a wrench.

If it really bothers you that much then I would just find a rubber plug that will fit in the hole

Its sealed when you slide the brake drum over it.

It reads as though this hole may be in or near the center of the hub, not the one that we might expect to see on the wheel stud flange.

I say pics are in order.

Don't worry about the hole. Mud is going to get into the the drums from the back anyway. The hole is a great place to stick a water hose when you get out of the mud to clean out the drums.

If it is the superoir type axle they came with a hole to get a socket through as stated. Mosers did not.

if it does not line up with the 4 backing bolts when rotated the pictures are a must...

it is in the part of the hub that isn't covered by the brake drum. its probably for the backing plate bolts but i can reach them with a wrench..
