Oil leak at thermostat housing and cylinder head

Or is it ? Is it even possible for oil to leak through here, or just coolant ? Maybe I am getting a leak from the Camshaft Sensor Housing and the Cylinder head. Expert opinions anyone and suggested fix ?

I don't see anything really... there does look to be a tiny coolant leak at the T-Stat gasket but it looks dry... and could just be dirt from before the last gasket change.

It's hard to see because I keep the engine very clean, the camera does not do justice.

BUMP . i want to find out if there is any such oil seal on this side of the sensor housing. i know there is one seal for the timing sprocket but no details are given in the factory service manual of the camshaft sensor housing.
