Default turbo oil return line strange

So I changed to a VF30 last weekend. SOmething has been bugging me. When I removed the OEM turbo, it pulled away from the oil return line on the bottom quite easily. I also found what seemed to be dirty, oily crap on the underside of the turbo in very specific places. I installed the new turbo, and the oil line slipped right on to the new turbo, even with the Subaru wire hose clamp in place. I couldn't figure out how to get that oil hose off, but it went together so I didn't worry.

My question is, is this common? should I be concerned about oil under the stock turbo?
