Should it matter whether it id pulled or hammered in?
Also there are some metric look alikes. Some are slightly smaller and others larger in OD v/s original.
Try it and you will experience what happens, same as putting grease on it. These seals have been designed with ridges which compress and seal in the retaining grove using friction to remain in place. The unneeded sealant fills these grooves and acts as a lubricant.Only I can not believe that the sealant was the cause for the fact your seal popped out.
