Very unlikely the oil /grease is from the motor itself .have you taken the unit apart and removed the blower wheel to clean it they do get very grease laden over time.

No I haven’t taken apart

I suspect the oil your seeing is from the blower wheel throwing grease off of it .

The motor only have a few drops of oil in them if it has any oil on the bearings at all ..

I recommend taking the motor / blower wheel down remove the blower wheel ans clean it with a greaser.
