You either have had the wrong valve seals installed, they are physically missing, or the valves are incorrect (too loose in the guides/stem too thin). The rocker arm seals will not contribute to your issue. If it did not have the oil smoke before you took the head off, the issue is with whatever the machine shop did. Valve seals have to fit TIGHT, or oil will go down the valve stem into the intake.
Take the head back to the machine shop & tell them to fix it. For free.

Get a can of Gunk and clean the engine according to the directions there (please do read them), with attention to the area around where the oil leak is. Once you get the motor squeaky clean, you will be able to trace back to where the oil is coming from. It may be running down the underside of a hose so you will need to look carefully. You can do all this in the driveway. You will probably have to let the engine get to operating temp before it will start leaking.
