Hey when I got done installing my new hub assembly I realized I’d left off the rubber oring that goes on the back side. Is this a big deal or is this just for the Vacumm hub system which I don’t use anymore? I have Manual hubs

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
It's probably there to keep dirt, water, mud, etc. out of the hub. I would take the time to install it. That takes less time and is cheaper than cleaning and/or replacing stuff later.
