Maybe when someone replaced the seal, he thought it should stick out a bit to get a "new" surface to seal against? I'd prefer to seat the new seal flush or just a hair deeper instead. My thinking is that the surface of the crank is cleaner further into the engine, simply because it's been sealed inside the engine case for a long time. The exterior surface of the crank has been exposed to the elements for a long time and doesn't have as smooth of a sealing surface.
