It's a thumper. When you open the oil cap about 650cc of air will come out. Well, perhaps only 600cc, as the other 50cc will be oil.
In a more serious vein, the engine does have a crankcase breather that is a tube extending from the crankcase to the airbox. It does a pretty good job of breathing back and forth. If you remove the oil cap that breather becomes the path of most resistance, the oil fill hole the path of least resistance. Lots of stuff will come out. That fact is not an indicator of the health of the engine.
Don't worry, someday you'll change the oil, forget to put the cap back on, and start it up. You'll see firsthand...
