Default another chain issue

When you buy a new chain, sometimes its in
a box and is very well lubed. But sometimes it
comes from a big roll (coil?) and there is what
appears to be but an oily touch. Should you
lube it when you've put it on or is the
"industrial lube" worth preserving?

It has been my experience that the lube from the manufacturer is generally better and lasts longer than anything you could put on as a replacement.

I can't quite remember but I think that my KMZ Gold (high end not color) said that they were lubricated for life.

I think that reading Sheldon Brown's pages might answer a lot of your
questions.

Why? Don't modern bicycles still have chains on them.
