Do you have hoses running from the valve cover to the filter cannisters? They usually come from a PCV valve and the intention is that the engine aspirates any oil vapours from the crankcase.
In some cases an excess of oil will travel this path and be evidenced by what you're seeing. However that's usually on older engines that are suffering from "blowby" that tends to pressurize the crankcase and force more oil out those hoses. With a freshly rebuilt engine (assuming a proper job) that shouldn't be happening.
