Are generator sets considered oil-filled operational equipment?

No.  Generator sets (gen sets) are a combination of oil-filled operational equipment and a bulk storage container.  Lubrication systems on gen sets may be oil-filled operational equipment, but bulk storage tanks providing fuel for the generator typically are not oil-filled operational equipment.
