The turbo doesn't have "seals" persay. It has metal oil rings-the reason they don't leak is the fact that oil can flow through them fairly quickly without pooling-if oil sits in them, they will leak. I'd check the return line as mentioned above. That's not to say it can't be leaking oil, but usually oil leaking isn't the first sign of a failing turbo.
Smoking isn't uncommon after engine work-I wouldn't worry about it just yet.
