2000 corolla timing chain tensioner oil leak?

I went to Dealer yesterday for a oil change (it was free) and a free lunch to boot
Anyway after it was done I saw a little notation on the bottom of the work order that says timing chain tensioner O ring has oil leak.
I was wondering if this is possible and how can they see that on a oil change?
Engine is a 1.8L.Is the chain not enclosed and lubed anyway?

Common and can be seen from underneath. It's bolted into the rear of the timing cover from the outside.

Pretty easy, remove the two 10mm bolts, replace the "O" ring

I sent you a doc with the procedure for resetting the tensioner
