If so, then there should be at least a little residue which there is... but barely even noticeable on my finger.

Seems to be ok. Still no word on the Turbo. I will keep everyone updated.

All good points. If you just feel a film of oil, there is no oil blowing out from the oil tank into the intake.
When the BOV opens, you would get some oil recirculated into the air. This would cause a "puff" of smoke out the exhaust when the BOV closes again and the throttle is opened. You experienced smoke when you were going downhill with the throttle closed or partially opened, right?
