It's in the shop right now gettting fixed under the powertrain warranty, thankfully.

How the heck does the axle seal get blown out?

Is it one of the rear axle seals? If so, the crappy vent on the axle is what a lot suspect as the culprit. The axle vent is not continuous, just a check valve so once the axle cools you will basically be pulling a vacuum on your axle seals, which can cause premature wear. Do a search for 'axle vent mod', which a few on here have done. This involves replacing the check valve with a continuous vent so the axle can breathe. That seems to be a cheap and effective solution for those with axle seal issues.
