Thanks!
It a special assembly paste which performs better here than grease.

Translated by deepl.com:
Quote
High-performance tungsten disulfide paste for extreme stresses. Adheres even to apparently smooth surfaces. Prevents run-in damage and seizure marks when applied to bearings and sliding guides when assembling components with close pairings. With synergistic solid lubricant system based on zinc sulfide, graphite, fluorides and tungsten disulfide. Temperature application range: -35 C to +450 C
