That is what it is for. Once you get the axle out you should be able to pop the seals out with a screwdriver. There is a tool that is length of rod with the end ground rounded and then bent back into a tight J shape. You could make one of these for popping out seals. It is easier on them a screwdriver as, if you make it right, it levers against the interior of the hub rather than the edge of the seal. Sometimes a wide blade screwdriver will catch the lip of the race and you can twist the seals out that way as well.

Hmm, not sure about the new ones, but DA has always been a significant step up in quality over other Shimano offerings .....

The nine speed fronts are a pain to get apart, they made everything out of alluminum so it is a little thicker to get the strength back up and they had to slot the cones to clear the bearings for assembly. So you end up wiggling it a bit to get everything in position.
