If your diff doesn't make any noise under any circumstances, then you have no way of knowing (other than taking it through an auto-x) if the diff is doing it's job. I'd take that little groaning noise as a sign your car is healthy.
What you say may be true, but do you have any facts to support that? I don't think the modifiers just make the fluid slipperier, but I could be wrong.
