I have read that it is advisable to drip oil directly in the freewheel (laying the wheel on the side, having taken off the cassette) and stop when the oil drips out on the other side. Is this something you recommend doing? My wheels are Mavic Ksyriums SSCL -03. I thought that you only should use grease in there.

You dont have a freewheel you a cassette.
I would not worry about lubing it until you overhaul the hub. Just keep the chain lubed and clean.
