Oil Leak

My Vel Satis 2.2dci was delivered by transporter this weekend. Driver said it had dropped oil onto his trailer.
We opened bonnet and whole engine and engine bay was covered in oil . Dipstick did not register any oil but dash display said oil OK. There is no obvious leak but dipstick was not fully inserted. I notice that the hole for the dipstick is very low down in engine bay and I wonder if it allowed oil out when car was at an angle on the transporter. Does anyone have any views please?
Currently in seanb's garage:
citroen xm estate, fiat ulysse, both petrol. vel satis 2.2dci
