I think that seal plays a huge part in keeping engine fumes out of the HVAC

If your leak onto the catalytic converter  is from the power steering rack
or the hose connection to it, you'd see a gradual drop in the hydraulic oil
level, I'd think.  The hose connection on the bottom of the hydraulic
reservoir also is a common leak point.
