Sounds like something along the lines of valve stem seals. I'd remove the manifolds to see if the valves had residue on them. Thats just me.

The wet and dry comparison test can be inconclusive due to many factors. I would scrap the numbers and do one test on the engine at operating temperature, no more than 5 minutes after shutdown. By then the rings should be expanded and full of oil.
