2G Valve stem seals install wet vs dry

Cleaning up a head for assembly and just wanted to get some opinions on if people are installing their valve stem seals with oil, dry, or a special tool?

Special tool and dry is how we did my sons, while on the car. From the machine shop, they would be dry except the valve stems would be lubed up. A stem seal is suppose to wipe the oil from the stems as its purpose.
