F10 N20 oil burning smell

F10 N20 oil burning smell and smoking from passenger side under the hood. I knew my valve cover gasket was leaking which I recently replaced but still having this problem. What am I missing here.

1- Did they clean off the old oil that had leaked from the old VCG when they replaced it... or just changed the gasket and sent you on your way?

2- Here we also replace the eccentric actuator's football seal and the vacuum pump seal (back of the valve cover) as these do not come in the VCG set. Did these get replaced too?

3- Have you done a visual inspection to see if you find any fresh oil spots?
