oil leak - from the spare tire?

I posted this a while back, but no solution was found, so I'll try again...

At the rear of the MDX, a small amount of oil drips from the bolt that hangs at the center of the spare tire. Just enough oil for a drop the size of a dime. Doesn't happen all the time, but quite frequently.

Dealer said it was from lubricant used on the spare tire cable. They cleaned it off, but the leak is still there.

Anyone have the same or similar problem?

Noticed all those posts were in August. June has been a warm month too.
There is nothing else there but the spare cable. Have not seen it yet myself.
I've got about 5 very small drops inside the tire cover on mine. I will keep track of the number, I don't know what else to do at this point.
