Oil in sparkplug hole

Changed the spark plugs on my 02 OBW today and was concerned about finding oil in one of the spark plug holes at 54 000 km. What I mean is that when I pulled the spark plug wire, it was coated with engine oil, as was the spark plug. The inside surface of the spark plug hole through the valve cover had maybe 3 ml of oil in it. I'm guessing that since its only one spark plug, and only a small amount of oil, that I need not be concerned, and yes, I could make it a warranty issue if I wished to. Anyone think I need to be concerned?
The seal (not sure if it's an actual rubber seal, or silicone sealant) between the cam cover and the head has been breached. I'd have it fixed.
