It appears that your well-intentioned effort to keep the bearings lubricated has also resulted the grease being pushed past the grease seal. Not a revelation for these so-called easy-lube systems. I suggest, when performing this maneuver, that you ensure the seal is warmed up and there's plenty of anecdotal experience to suggest that elevating the wheel and rotating same while pumping the grease can prevent the grease from pouring out the backside before you see it coming out the front side.
