Default Apparently rare .303 brass oilers

Came across three of these (two are in the below picture) each one had a different stamp on the bottom. There was a note in the package with them that said:

1. Marked JJB (for MK70)

1. Marked MA (Australian)

1. Marked S&6 8L (not clear)

Anyone have any ideas on these or other knowledge? Thanks!! EDIT: (Just saw some info that they may not be very rare at all)
