Is there a problem with them? Haven't seen many yota hubs wear out.
As far as grease, I don't think it really matters much. They don't get that hot, but I usually put a little high temp grease left over from my birfs. Doesn't take much though.

I've used both White Lithium grease and regular hi-temp bearing grease with no problems.

That usually does the trick.
