Regular Loctite works by forming crystals when it dries,like having salt added to the threads.It is for threaded things.Bearing mount is for smooth things,like a spun rod bearing in an engine,YES, it will hold a spun bearing believe it or not.
I'm not sure what a bb30 BB looks like in person but it looks in the pictures like there are no threaded cups.I'm guessing that this is a repair type bearing for stripped threads.
Get rid of the regular Locktite and get what is called Bearing Mount by Locktite.If that's what is making noise by moving around,bearing mount will cure the movement.It come in stick form and in liquid form,depending on how much gap needs to be filled.The liquid will fill a .030 gap,I'm sure that's plenty.
Be warned that it will take some heat to remove the bearing next time.
