Default rear axle endplay

I have about 0.025" end play on one axle shaft. The other side has no perceptible movement (I didn't put an indicator on it) anyway, the bearing and seal are fairly new, maybe 5k miles? The bearing and retainer are tight and right where they should be. I'm wondering if the seal is too thin? Basically not pushing the bearing in against the flange.

I'm not sure this video helps. Pretty sure most bearings move like this when not installed.

Is that a ball or roller bearing? A good ball bearing will not have that much play unless it is sliding on the shaft.

Roller bearings. Set 10 I believe.
