If by "oil in them" you mean "oil in the passage in the head under the coils that the spark plugs fit into," then yes, valve cover gaskets. They're a common failure item. You should be able to tell pretty easy. There'll be oil and/or sludge where the valve cover meets the top of the head if the gasket is leaking.
