I was having the transmission replaced, and when the mechanic was unplugging the electrical lines, oil came out of each plug. He cleaned each one plugged them back together and the transmission works perfectly. It works for me, because I don't have to pay for a new transmission afterall.

My question though, is how the oil would've gotten in the plugs to begin with? Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone have any ideas what would have caused this?

It’s called wicking. You need to fix it. It is caused by bad seals/o-rings or bad connectors.
