Indeed it can. The hydraulic pump (at least in the older models) uses engine oil for lubrication. There is a seal between 'oil' side of the pump and the 'hydraulic' side. If that seal is bad, oil is forced under pressure into the hydraulic fluid.
What I did to verify this was drain my diff case up to the bottom of the check plug hole, than added a known amount of oil. I used 2 quarts. Then when the dip stick told me I had used up those 2 quarts (in other words, the level prior to adding), I opened up the check plug hole to see how much came out. In my case, it was 2 quarts.
You can buy a rebuild kit for these that contains the seal or just the seal itself.
Now, I guess the question is, would this affect the front loader?
