All you can attest to is that rubbing oil on your seats make them feel softer to you, you cannot attest to the oil being absorbed into the leather.
As oil doesn't evaporate, the thick layer of oil that is applied to the Dakota Leather seats has to go somewhere (like into the leather). Simply contradicting a user's direct observation, doesn't discount such an attestation or support a "conclusion" that the oil is not absorbed by the leather. There's nothing like real-life testing to validate or invalidate a theory.
