Default small oil ring on the front bearing?

when i take my flywheel off, there is a small oil ring around the inner seal on the front bearing. I have seen this many times when i take the flywheel off, and maybe i am being paranoid. But is this normal? Bearings are not gritty and relatively new.

if it isnt a lot i wouldnt worry about it is it running good ? sometimes if the engine is really rich than can happen, too but if its a lot i would change it.

Perfectly normal! No bearing is completely leak free. They will all leak a little bit of oil out. When it gets to be a problem is when it is leaking a lot of oil out. That's when you know there is a larger than normal leak and the possibility of an air leak. At that point the bearing should be changed, but you know that.
