Fluid leak on inner side of rear wheel

I just dropped my 2007 Jeep Wrangler off at the dealership for them to diagnose what the issue is with my vehicle. There is a leak of fluid around the inside of the wheel rim. My guess is it could be a differential leak. Couple questions.

1. What should I be looking at being charged to fix the leak from the dealership?

2. I just had the differential fluids changed in January, is it possible any work they may have done could cause this, or is there something they could or should have inspected when doing the fluid change that might have prevented this?

Is there something other than the diff leaking that could cause this leak?

Unfortunately, I didn't take photos of the leak before dropping the vehicle off.

Any input would be welcome...

Could be an axle seal that is leaking or a leak at your caliper/ wheel cylinder.
