so the rear main oil seal leaking and needing to be replace in such a new car is acceptable? or do you think the manufactururer should pay towards the cost?

I did not say this was acceptable, I said it is not common, per your question.
it is rare for this to leak on such a new car, but it can happen.
if the car is out of warranty (as I assume it is), then the manufacturer has not liability whatsoever to cover any costs associated with this leak
you can ask if they will consider contibuting towards the cost as a good will gesture, but they have nothing forcing them to do so. If they decline that is up to them, they have no responsibility for this on an out of warranty car
