Default Mercury 150 4-stroke..water out of the hole where you drain oil

So I have a new Mercury 150 4stroke that I broke in last fall and changed the oil and lower gear case and then went away for the winter. This spring I have had it out 5 times and noticed that a little water comes out of the area when you drain the oil. It's not coming out of the drain hole but around it. Called my dealer and was told this is perfectly normal.

Has anyone also had this happen or knows if this is normal?

Here is a picture not a huge spray but a noticeable amount of water

Default Same here

Noticed the same thing after I changed my oil for the first time on my new 150. I called the dealer in full panic - I just knew I had loosened the drain plug more than the 2.5 turns the manual warned me about (for fear of damaging a seal). Service guy said it was perfectly normal. Kind of wish they'd make a note of that in the manual.
