Exclamation Controlled Differential questions

Ive read that these axles and parts are non serviceable. How does this Controlled "mechanism" work and can it malfunction?

I bought a '76 SDV recently. When I test drove it I did a LIGHT THROTTLE (1200 -1600 RPM) burnout in loose dirt just for fun and noticed it had 2 tracks dug instead of one. Ive been unable to find the build sheet with the identification code or look under the axle for it. Earlier today I did a heavy throttle (gas pedal to the floor) burnout in the dirt and there was only 1 track dug on passenger side. I then did light throttle again and the driver side wheel dug less than passenger side. Whats the deal, is the pumpkin damaged? needing fluid changed??
