yea, oil could foul out your plugs in theory, but I doubt its related to the thermostat housing gasket/O-ring. Not sure how you've come to that conclusion or even speculation...

Oil leaking into your engine could foul up alot of things...but when this O-ring leaks, the coolant is leaking down onto your engine, transmission and a couple other places, but eventually the ground. Its not getting into your engine unless you have a coolant leak somewhere else.
