Looks like transmission oil leak car parked for month?

Have had my car in my garage parked for over a month now and noticed oil leak under center to passenger front door area, now never had a leak when I drove the car and am wondering about the Mechatronics sleeve would that leak oil when just standing still for this length of time or only when driving the car?
Have not been able to jack car up to have a better look as I am recovering from surgery and before I am able to do so would appreciate any suggestions of what this could be, oil smell and consistence looks to me like tranny fluid and not motor oil.
Thanks,

the mechatronics sleeve sits way up in the tranny and is not submerged in tranny fluid.

Only way to find out is to remove the splash shields under the car and take a look with a flash light.
