unless I really misunderstood something, isn't all of your check engine lights (including oil) come on right when you start the car, just like every car on the road? I would think it's ok for it to come on when you start the car, as long as it goes away shortly after
it's when the light remains on (perminatly) that you have problems...all dash lights go through a "self test" upon vehicle start up...if the proper signals are recieved within approx 10-15 seconds the lamp will shut off...you have nothing to worry about it sounds like.
