Is this oil spray coming from the filter cap?

From the first pic there are two small pools of oil either side the the filter cap.
The hood has oil spray which sits directly above the filter cap, my guess is it's coming from the side of the cap

Yup, that's from using a NON-OEM BMW oil filter and gasket. This is one of the things that NEEDS to be OEM. Trust me, I learned it the hard way also.
