Couple of questions please.

1. Ball is Urethane right?
2. Being Urethane it does not absorb oil like a reactive right?

Correct and correct. To be clear, urethane balls do absorb some oil, just not nearly as much as reactive balls.

But also remember, because it rolls through the same amount of oil as that reactive ball and the oil doesn't absorb it has to be somewhere. That somewhere is sitting on the outside of the coverstock, urethane bowling balls get much more "oily" on the cover than their reactive counterparts.

My Natural is a little weird. I clean it after use just like any of my gear. If I put the ball on the rack at home or in my locker, next time I come up to it the ball has sweated out some oil on the bottom. The ball definitely has a more "slimy" feel when bowling, like you can't towel it off enough.
