Question Plastic oil drain plug

Hello everyone, I recently did my 1st oil change on my 2014 BMW 320i F30 N20.

I bought the Filter and Plug and the oil from the Dealer.

After I greased up the new seals and installed them checked the oil no leaks. I checked the oil drain plug and it looked wet so I wiped it off, waited, didn't see any drips so I left a paper towel and took the dog for a walk and didn't see any drips when I got back, the plug still looked wet with little residue when I wiped it. Waited again, wiped it and more residue but no drips. Did this about 6 more times. I don't see any actual drip stains, just seems like the plug is seeping at a microscopic rate.

Should I replace the plug or am I just being paranoid?
