Another oil leak....

Hi guys, first I have a 97 SH with 126k. I know I have a rear main seal leak and have been checking the oil level at frequent intervals. Usually about every 4 days I have to top off the oil level. Nothing I would think is excessive oil leaking. But this weekend I took a long ride (about 2 hrs) in the lude and checked the oil level this morning and it was below the low line on the dip stick. It was nearly topped off before I left on the long drive. So I jacked up the car and there is noticeable oil seepage on the bottom of the atts unit. I can't find any threads or discussions about anyone's atts unit leaking oil and their solution. To my knowledge it should be filled with genuine Honda ATF fluid. I know the unit has an oil cooler line but nothing appears to be out of place when I look at the unit, nor is my atts light on the dash. Any ideas or suggestions? Im also considering it may be the oil cooler o ring and the oil is just leaking down making it appear the atts has problems?

I don't have smoke coming from the tail pipe and I just passed CA smog with no issues a couple weeks ago. I can't smell oil burning off the exhaust either. I'm really lost on what the huge oil loss is coming from based on all the oil I see coming off the atts unit. Need some help...

PS: cam seals, front main seal, distributer o ring, timing belt, water pump, spark plug tube seals have all been replaced within the last month.
