Stahlbus Oil Drain Valve

Anyone have experience with these?

Did an oil change today and a concern popped up. I have 2 of them. The main drain valve and one near the oil filter. The main drain valve had a small amount of oil (about 5ml) within the dust cap the other valve was completely clean and dry. No leaks between the pan and valve's.

Last oil change was this time last year and 3-4k miles of mild to aggressive (mostly mild) street use.

Is the small leak a concern?
Are these a wear item and should they be replaced periodically?
Should they not be in place for track use?

That said they worked great. Drained both simultaneously directly into the waste jug. No mess from the second drain valve with oil all over the cross member. Space was a little tight between the valve and that heat sink looking thing but workable.

My neighbor uses an oil drain value on his 4x4 truck. Replaces it every 5 years or so. He seems to like it.
