As with a Mercedes engine, there are only so many places oil can come from.
Dipstick, drain plug, valve cover gasket(s), oil pan gasket.
Usual procedure is to clean the engine really well (degreaser/simple green/etc) and then take a look-see.

Does it have an oil cooler? Those flimsy factory slip-n-clip fittings are a leak waiting to happen. Not to mention the flimsy crimps on the oil cooler hoses.

I don't think you can blame the OEM design for the leak. He did mention it was a rebuild so whoever rebuilt it probably did a scheißen job.
