Some cars have a hole in the rocker that is supposed to squirt oil towards the valve. At idle the oil just oozes out. Rev the engine up and it flies off the rocker arm. If oil is getting to the rockers it will slop around and get on the valves don't worry about that. When driving down the road everything will be covered in oil.

The real worry is oil going down the valve stems and burning, once the engine gets worn.
