You don't need an extra seal. The outside of the bearing has a seal and the o-ring should come withe the bearing.
The retainer has a gasket but is not sealed to the axle. If the bearing should leak, the retainer has a indention to allow grease to go through a hole in the backing plate and not get on the brake shoes.
