My D800E had what were probably oil spots when new. For the first 1,000 shots I was mostly fooling around, trying all my lenses, and getting used to the camera, so I didn't bother cleaning it immediately. When I finally did a wet cleaning, that solved the problem. I'm up to around 6,000 shots and haven't needed to clean it yet.

I had a similar experience with my D700.

My point being that some initial oil spotting is normal for Nikon FX DSLR's lately. It does not have to mean you have a defective D600.
