After replacing the carrier bearing (G569-25-155), CV axle (GP22-25-50XR-0B), and Wheel Bearing (GP7A-33-047), the faint whining heard when accelerating and unchanged by direction remained.
My conclusion is that the faint bearing sound that I heard is internal to the transmission. Perhaps pinion bearings or possibly just gear noise.

Differential oil seal (FP01-27-238)
Carrier bearing inner dust seal (G560-25-744)
Carrier bearing outer dust seal (GA21-25-742)

I plan on doing nothing unless the noise gets worse or new symptoms present.
