Default Slight Oil Puddle in 2011 Turbo Inlet

I recently replaced the water outlet line on my 2011 F350. When I pulled the main intake off. I noticed there was a small oil puddle. A little more than residue and less than an actual puddle of fresh oil on the inside of the inlet. Is this a sign that the seals are leaking. Not sure if the turbo uses bearings or seals to lubricate. The truck hasn't really eaten oil. Are these turbos rebuildable or do I need to replace? If so, any decent upgrades for towing? Truck has 138k miles, ******d, H&S MiniMaxx running 5w-30.
Thanks

Thats normal. See ot on trucks with 10k and trucks with 150k. The ccv returns a ton of oil to the intake causing this.

Ok cool. Would a CCV reroute help with this?
