Sounds like a real mystery--has to be a way in, and out. At least the damage is not hard to repair.
Don't know of any raccoon repellent...short of a trap.

Not a wheel/bearing expert by any norm--but reading the Dexter info, it says: 0 to 0.19 INSET for the 8k axles. You are saying OFFSET? Can't speak to longevity of that difference.
