    It seems the source of the oil leak is coming from the exhaust valve.

    Could it be the valve stem seal or maybe the valve guide?

Hello sir why any one hero honda splendor , passion bikes having lots of problem of carbon from silencer , customer regularly change oil but oil level is not sufficient at the time of next oil change ,...

Grinding the valves will not affect the oil consumption or carbon build-up in the exhaust. Carbon can be from a rich mixture of fuel, but then the carbon will be a light powder that will rub off easily. If the carbon is hard and baked it will be a combination of fuel and oil, and the only ways you can get excessive oil int he exhaust is if the valve stem seals are leaking or if the rings are worn. Worn rings will make the machine smoke all the time but valve stem seals will make it smoke on first start-up of the day and also when you have rev-ed the machine and suddenly closed the throttle.
