Small oil stains after my service

I had my service earlier this week and went to add Dommers SRT badge to the front bar today. Noticed a bit of oil on my hand and arms when I pulled the arm back out from that little manhole?
Checked my car spot and I've got a couple little oil stains. Wtf I'm wondering it its overflow?
The car was PERFECT when it went in!!!

Sometimes when the old oil is drained during an oil change, some of the old oil spills onto the plastic pan under the engine. This could be the oil dripping from the pan onto your floor.

Worst case scenario is that you have an oil leak, e.g. link to oil leak thread.

Wipe the plastic drip pan just under the oil filter and re- tighten the oil filter. I had to re- tighten my oil filter after every oil change.

Back at the dealership this morning so fingers are crossed it's something as simple as they didn't clean after themselves

Update:
They said that the filter may not have been on properly but they believe it was most likely they didn't clean up after themselves
I'm going to keep an eye on it anyway
