If the bearings are a press fit and the hub is supposed to be heated for removal and installation then I would do it that way. What does the manual say? What kind of bike is this? Putting the thinnest layer of grease somewhere where it doesn't belong will change the seating of those bearing races. Not much but it will change. Raising the bearing race will change bearing preload.
