I noticed a odd smell after driving to Duluth, MN yesterday. When I stopped I stepped out and smelled what was maybe oil or similar fluid burning. I poped the hood and looked around. I didn't see any signs of fluid leaks. Very weird. BTW: I just turned 1000 miles on her yesterday.
In 2006/-2008 there were many JKs with this exact same situation. Especially if you get them wet/muddy. I always thought it was the catalytic and/or the coating the put on the exhaust system. Idk. Just a guess. Btw, it stopped about a year later

First couple thousand miles on my 2012 had that weird smell. Completely normal, nothing to see here

Probably just oil from the manufacturing process burning off. It could also be just the environment. Sometimes I smell biting when driving but it goes away so I assume its someone else or a factory nearby.
If there is no smoke I wouldn't worry too much. Good news is you went to the dealer so if anything should happens or burn you have it on file you complained it.
Could also be the exhaust you're smelling. I'm sure they have oil in them from the manufacturer that will burn away
