If it's spilled onto the engine, yes. It will burn off eventually.

is that bad for the engine though? and all I know is that there was a leak in the gasket and they replaced the front and back and I still smell it...I feel like there shouldn't be any smell after that, but what do I know

take it to a self serve car wash and wash off the engine, be careful not to get the electical wet.
When you have a leak like that it the oil will go all over the engine block and when you will smell it as the engine heats up and burns it away.
