I think it comes from overfilling them though, since the oil builds up just a tiny little over the edge, if you put the blatter on just now, you have a slightly overfilled shock(you can see this when the blatter comes out when you put it on). The shock now needs to loose this extra amount of oil and does this very slowly since all rubbers are high quality. that's why you find oil at every exit of your shock.
Anyway, try not to overfill in the future because this gives you less compensation volume and changes damper characteristics.
Thanks nilezb, I'll redo them this weekend before the next race.
