I think the only way to get a better idea is to degrease the trans pan area and oil pan area. Once clean drive it a bit and see if you can see any drips. Just to give you an idea, I just bought a 6.0 truck from a dealer that looked about the same as yours, oil mess wise. I took it home for the night, sprayed it off with purple power, drove it around when it was clean and saw NO leaks 'knock on wood'. So it could have been an old part that was leaking then replaced and not cleaned properly. my 2 cents. hope that helps.

I agree it should be cleaned for a good diagnosis, but I would suspect it is coming from up around the high pressure oil pump. it is mounted on top of the engine in the back of the valley on those engines.
