If the oil return was leaking it would just drip down under the car. The oil feed where it meets the turbo might be it, if it leaks just a little the oil hitting the hot turbine housing will smoke quite a bit. Check for leaks, all there is to it.

This happened to a couple people I know. It could be the return line but, not because it is leaking. The return line has to be straight down, not at an angle or not crimped any where. If it is not straight the turbo can not return enough volume of the oil, there for over flowing the turbo and causing it to spill though the a/r housing, into your down pipe and out the back of your exhaust system. Or your internal turbo oil seal could be bad.
