If what you mean by "the bottom of the exhaust" you're talking about the muffler; that is normal. 2 stroke engines rely on the oil in the fuel mix for lubrication. The oil, for the most part, is not burned or consumed so some residue showing at the exit of the exhaust is to be expected. Those running the synthetics and Opti-2 at 100:1 are the exception. There is so little oil that there isn't much left after combustion to drip from the muffler.
