Default Front output shafts and oil

I recently had my trans out to install a couple bad synchros.

I've noticed each output shaft out of the front diff is now showing oil residue between the diff and boots (the black metal part of the shaft).

I've cleaned them with brake cleaner, and the residue comes back. It's not heavy at all. Just enough to see.

Should I ask the shop to fix this, or is it considered typical?

No not typical unless you have high mileage and had the axles removed.
You need new axle seals - probably got damaged or the springs popped out removing/installing axles.
Can't speak for other shops but it is good practice to replace axle seals when have a transmission out, especially with mileage. Subaru even pays for them on warranty transmission repairs - on brand new low mileage cars.

How'd things turn out?

I feel your pain...having my own issues with axle seals, on a MY04 WRX.

Haven't been back under the car to see how much of the oil was from the turbo oil drain leak, which was pretty good size.
