Just had mine serviced at main dealer. Oil was drained via sump plug and new one fitted. Only done 2 miles and oil is clean but mine is petrol. My Volvo deisel blackened the fresh oil almost immediately.
Oil is changed at every service so I wouldn’t worry about it.

Did they charge you for a sump plug , my main agent always does ,so this would mean the oil was dropped in the traditional way rather than being sucked out. I would challenge them about it I had an oil change in April and the oil is still a golden colour.

Oil changed in April would not be golden if a diesel unless not driven!!

I recently had the oil and filter changed on my XE 200D a year after the previous service, because I don't think it is a good idea to have a 2-year or 21k miles interval. This is especially so when the oil can get diluted by diesel fuel when the DPF regeneration is interrupted. Whilst it seemed less black than before, it was still black ! Diesel engines seem to leave a huge amount of black "stuff" inside the engine, and I suspect only a flush would clear it all out.
