Default Oil in weird spot in cabin

Noticed a couple drops of oil underneath the throttle cable where it meets the throttle lever in the cabin. In my RV-8, I have the side panel throttle quadrant mod, but for purposes of this discussion should be considered identical to a stock build.

The other end is connected to a Lyc IO360M1B. The end of the cable is in the vicinity of the low pressure oil return lines, so I decowled to investigate. There was a touch of moistness in that area but nothing more than usual, and certainly nothing obvious that caught my eye. I tightened the hose clamps and buttoned everything up.

Any thoughts? Am I missing something? I checked the other two cables - prop and mixture - and they are completely dry (none of them are in the vicinity of any moistness anyway).

Finally, do any of you replace those short runs of hose from the aluminum return lines to the case?

Here are some pix:

MANY thanks in advance.
