In the end No.

Lots of research seemed to confirm the lip on theses seals (that is very uncommon) was there to aid the factory building process and served no other purpose.

I carefully buffed the lip off the new seal and drove it home using a 38mm socket, just smaller than the OD, and touch of red rubber grease on the inside.

Took her a decent run lastnight at variable speeds and all good. If it does not last then I will happily split the cases knowing I tried this easier option first.

This seems to be a popular option in Europe.
