Thanks sweetcell for the compliment and I respect your concerns, but I've done much research and found that people who have oiled their paddle and used it multiple times, they had no ill-effects to their finished beer or head retention specifically.
I therefore said F it and went ahead and oiled it. I think it looks better with the grain color popping. If I do experience bad outcomes with the finished product, then ill know not to use oiled paddles in the future.
Considering the amount of time the paddle will actually be in contact with the wort, I'm not going to stress about it anymore.
