Noob question alert!

I was doing the throttle body bypass today so I took off my intake and noticed something. I ran my finger along the throttle body plate and my finger was pretty dirty. It smelled a little like oil.

Anyone else's this way? I think I remember reading that a little oil is recycled into the intake (or maybe intake manifold) to burn off in the engine. Maybe that's what it is?
