Adding on X450e-48p to an existing OSPF network

A previous network engineer setup OSPF throughout our network, he has since left. I just finished & passed my CISCO CCENT, so while I’ve just finished learning and practicing OSPF I’m still inexperienced. 
I’m tasked with setting up a new office, which has an Ethernet connection to our extreme switch and we want to disable OSPF on the router in front of the switch and use the new line / extreme switch. I have the cmd to turn off OSPF on the router, but my question is how OSPF works via Extreme OS, I’ve downloaded Extreme’s admin guide and read through it, however I’ll show code that I’m not sure on. 

On other extreme switch that is running OSPF correct:
enable ospf
enable ospf export direct cost 1 type ase-type-1 – what does this mean?
enable ospf export static cost 1 type ase-type-1- same as above
configure ospf add vlan Backbone area 0.0.0.0 
configure ospf vlan Backbone priority 0
configure ospf add vlan XO-VPLS-MESH area 0.0.0.0


My code on the switch I configured. 
enable ospf
enable ospf export direct cost 10 type ase-type-1
enable ospf export static cost 10 type ase-type-1
configure ospf vlan CTAP-Agent priority 0 – Not sure why these vlans auto appeared, I only configured the vlan XO_VPLS for ospf 

configure ospf vlan EVN priority 0 - similar
configure ospf vlan IPC priority 0 – similar 
configure ospf vlan IVN priority 0 - similar
configure ospf add vlan XO_VPLS_MESH area 0.0.0.0 
configure ospf vlan XO_VPLS_MESH priority 0

I deleted the default route to the router, since I want all traffic to go out the XO line, with ospf, I should need a default route? 

I am also noticing that on the HQ iproute table it shows the vlans EVN, IPC, etc as (d) - direct connect? why is it not listing them as OSPF? 
Thanks

We are redistributing static and directly connected routes to ospf.

configure ospf vlan CTAP-Agent priority 0 – Not sure why these vlans auto appeared, I only configured the vlan XO_VPLS for ospf .
EXOS 15.3.1.4-patch1-30 --we have this default config added to the ospf config which cant be deleted.this should have been fixed in recent release.

I deleted the default route to the router, since I want all traffic to go out the XO line, with ospf, I should need a default route? 
I need to know the topology to answer this query.

I am also noticing that on the HQ iproute table it shows the vlans EVN, IPC, etc as (d) - direct connect? why is it not listing them as OSPF? 

Need more information for this query as well.
