As was said, it is just stabilizing material not a leak.
The multimeter test of the windings is certainly an excellent approach to checking the motor but unfortunately it doesn't really tell the whole story. When the motor is running there are vibrations and magnetizing effects that can cause the windings to slightly move and perhaps open up or even get some turn-to-turn short. OTOH, I don't really suspect the motor but you never know!
