Hi Steve, it's possible that the oil may have been spilled there during an oil change. I always wrap a rag around the filter housing when un-screwing the lid to prevent this from happening. If any oil is spilled in this area it gets into spots that can't be wiped off with a rag. The M111 engine in this car is one of the few MB engines that's not notorious for oil leaks.
