Speaking for my own MGB it doesn't drop oil and never has in the 20 years 
I've been driving it, but I know many do.  All MGBs always had two breather 
ports to the engine.  In the early days which was suction and which was 
inlet was very hit and miss, after that suction (first from a PCV valve then 
from carb(s)) was always applied to the front tappet chest cover and the 
inlet was always via the rocker cover in the shape of a vented oil filler 
cap on charcoal canister cars and via a port on the back on canister cars. 
But in any case only dropping oil after switch-off isn't a breather issue, 
and the it to be an issue anyway both would have to be blocked and it would 
be more likely to blow oil with the engine running, initially at least.
