I would think oil splash will still come through. My M in L swears by old fashioned green soap for grease marks, worked on OH hoodie, try rubbing the marks with that. OR

How do you get greasy marks off walls?

For small stains, mix: 1/4 teaspoon of soap in a cup of warm water, and wipe. Rinse with clean water, and blot until dry. Clean stubborn grease stains with solution of 1/3 cup of white household vinegar with 2/3 cup of water. OR

Mix one part white vinegar with one part hot water. Use a spray bottle to apply the solution to the grease. Allow it to set for several minutes and then wipe with a clean rag. Work in small areas and repeat as many times as necessary to get the wall clean

Sugar soap should sort it but if in doubt, and you don't want to be constantly re-painting, get a can of stain block or equivalent. (ebay )
