After some discussion with a ZF drivetrain expert at BMW HQ, they recommended to use Loctite 660 on flanges with mild wear, because it's designed to replace air gaps in splined shafts.
Vibration protection is the goal to save the output flange.

He did say that output flange may benefit from some hardening, but looking at the mild wear on the transfer case shaft and flange, I'd rather not have that be the harder component, and put the eventual wear onto transmission output shaft.
