Oil in compressor housing with ccv mod already done

I am in the middle of installing my new turbo wheel and up pipes and intercooler boots and found a little oil in the compressor housing and in the tubes. The ccv mod was done years ago. I don't get any smoke driving. Truck has 110,000 it and next to nothing for shaft play. Is this normal to get a little oil past the shaft seal that's the only place I can see it coming from

Is it like oil residue or what looks like fresh oil?

I see guys all the time, when putting a new wheel on, finding something they're concerned with. Movement, stains, discoloration, all stuff that's pretty normal and they were better-off not knowing of

on one of my last trucks with a 7.3 that we did a wheel and ccv mod, the turbo housing was extremely dirty and we cleaned it for a while before new wheel install. i would bet that it wasnt fully cleaned when the wheel was added years ago because cleaning the housing area where the wheel resides is no quick task. lacquer thinner cuts old oil easily and is the only thing we have found to work quickly.
