Changing a Cassette

I moving my cassette to a new wheel. I noticed after I removed the lock ring and cassette from the old wheel that there is some grease where the lock ring was. Is this grease necessary and if so, what type of grease should I use?

Regards,

Probably grease from the hub, nothing to do with the cassette. It's most likely just assembly grease like park grease.

Greasing the locking threads is not a bad idea. I think a lot of us don't bother.
