I would hope that when they checked the motor to investigate the warning light that they did actually check the oil pressure via an externally connected gauge.
One of my Holdens had a problem, ie. I noticed that the oil pressure light would stay on for longer at start up, especially cold starts, but would then go out. The dealer hooked up an oil pressure gauge and concluded that the pressure was slow to build and dropped off as the revs increased. It turned out to be the gasket between the oil pick-up tube and the engine block bleeding air into the system.
Fortunately I was observant and noticed the problem as soon as it became evident so drove gently, so no significant damage was done.
