The RDM has a clutch pack that allows partial engagement of the rear axle.
I think the particulate in the RDM fluid is probably particles shedding off of the clutch pack.
Some amount is normal I would think, but how much is a totally different matter...
It's supposed to be a lifetime fluid though, so changing it repeatedly might lead to the rear end not engaging kind of like an old transmission starting to slip after a fluid change.
