should there be oil on the camshaft sensor when you take it out? on 2005 Dodge Ram 1500

I got a code that my camshaft sensor set off. I tried replacing it and when I pulled the old one out there was oil on it. I put the new one in and the engine light stayed on and truck still didn't start right. I pulled the new sensor out and there was oil on it also

Thank you. Do you have any suggestions on how to go about fixing that. Somebody told me that it may be my crankshaft sensor. They said the 2 work together??

THEY DO BUT IT COULD BE NUMEROUS ISSUES LIKE PLUGGED OIL PASSAGES OR CIRCUIT ISSUES. SEEK PROPER DIAG AND EST
