if in the spark plug hole, then problem could be the valve cover oil seal, that seals the valve cover to the engine, being around 10 years old, this could be the result of the rubber seal hardening up . should not be hard or costly to replace,
however, if you are referring to you taking the plug out and there is oil in the hole, this could be another matter entirely

SOURCE: Can oil in spark plug
No it wont hurt if you took out spark plug and oil went in the combustion chamber.just like you said it blew smoke itll burn out but itll take a while(10 minutes idling and 2 minutes if you drive it) Its not going damage anything or do any long term damage. But here the thing is the spark plug boot oil soak, That will be damage , and if you decide to reuse it eventually it will misfire and arch to ground,
