Perhaps, though unlikely.
Is this your first examination of the inside of the hoses?
Even in _very_ healthy engines, these hoses are often (apparently) _very_
oily. Of itself - without other symptoms - oil and/or the waxy residues left
by oil passage through the system is nothing to worry about.
Indeed - some of us worry about excessively dry systems.
