Rusty Rear Wheel Hubs E90 330D Sport

I replaced my brakes last weekend and whilst removing the rear wheels noticed major rust inside the hub where I assume the special nut holds the drive drafts onto the hub

Its behind the plastic BMW centre cap. It was well rusty, is this a problem and dangerous

I just had a major service from BMW and the car has full dealer service history and they have never said anything about this before

Thanks
