Oil leak around exhaust outtake

Hi there
after doing my valves, i thought i had a small oil leak from valve cover on the front cylinder or the crank-case cover, and needed a new o-ring
Thread here.
But today i changed all o rings, and again, it seems like all is dry around those..
With good light, and a dry clean bike i saw it was wet around the exhaust outtake, and thats why i have the terrible smoke just after just 2 minutes of engine idle.
How is this even possible?
To much oil i possible had, but not anymore. It's now between full and low. (I had about a millimeter below full earlier)
The gasket between cylinder head and cylinder seems tight. No leak on sides, or on the back, just around the exhaust outtake (see pics)
Is it just to blow out the oil, by a good ride?
Are the cylinder head done, and need replacement?
Any help / suggestion would be appreciated

EDIT: I am cleaning airbox and filterbox, was a little bit of oil there. But not much. Guess i already burned some of it. Could that be it?
