So in the manual, piston ring gap is there for the 1st and the 2nd, but doesn't mention anything for the oil ring gap - does it not matter for that ring by chance?
I can take my old one off and measure it and match it? but i'm curious as to why it doesn't mention anything?

The oil rings are 'gapless', also made of steel instead of iron. No gap measurement needed.

Once assembled and the ends staggered, there's no individual gap, so they make them with a wide gap that doesn't need checked. The end gap is done on the top rings to ensure the ends don't come together and break the ring.
