There is no direct path from the trans. To the oil pan.
The trans. Will usually leak from the axle seals, pan gasket, front seal, convertor or a crack somewhere.
The oil is also sealed at the trans connection (rear main seal).
The trans does send trans fluid to the radiator oil cooler, which can rupture and cause trans fluid to get into the coolant.
I would also agree the dealer needs some training in customer relations.
My suggestion is this, Have the dealer change oil, oil filter and trans fluid.
Do not touch the oil or trans fluid dipsticks and bring it back to dealer in a month to check both levels. If either level is off, then have them find the problem.
