While unbolting the diff itself, I noticed the holes in the diff case are significantly larger than the bolts which go through it. Therefore I marked the diff and chassis to prevent vibrations (and stress in the drivetrain) caused by a wrongly aligned diff later on:


I didn't mark the diff to carrier relationship but didn't have any issues with misalignment or vibration. I wonder if the larger holes are there to allow for movement?
