It must have a breather - as it warms up the oil and air in there will expand and start forcing past the oil seals so there will be a breather. I get your reasoning - blocked breather could be forcing oil out through the switch. Before you ask, I have no idea where the breather would be but it will be towards the top so it vents air and not oil. Might be a breather pipe on it.
