Thanks for asking your question and requesting me.
Yes it is very likely the rings have not seated yet. I have seen this many times with aftermarket parts. The best way to get them to seat quickly is to apply a heavy a load on the engine as possible. The heavier the load the quicker the rings will seat.
If after being heavily loaded for a while the engine continues to use oil. I must suspect an egg shaped liner. It's rare but I see this from time to time. If this is the case, you can spot the egg shaped liner after removing the head. The liner will have a different look as the rings are not touching all of the liner.
Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
