2 things could be happening. 1- you're over oiling the foam filter. This would cause the engine vacuum to draw oil out of valve cover thru the vent tube and saturate the filter with engine oil.

2- you're not squeezing enough oil off the filter seal and when you tighten the filter bolt it is squeezing excess oil out of seal and dripping off into airbox.

Is it filter oil or engine oil?
