2013 Mazda 3 cv boot leaking at 39k miles ?

So I'm looking for Mazda 3 experts on this one to help me figure this out.

The front passenger cv boot is leaking grease about 6 months after front passenger side tire hit a curb turning into parking spot. The tire was turned to the far right and pushed in so much that the wheel got pushed to the back of the well. It was undrivable. I know, I know - ouch.
Collision shop did work on front suspension (lower control arm was bent, alignment was bad).

Now the cv boot on the passenger side is leaking grease. Mazda did a full circle inspection and questioned this saying it was kinda unusual to see on a low mileage car. The car is driven about 7k per year and I have all mazda service records.

Anyone with experience here care to comment?

Thanks for any and all advice.
