Usually only turbo engine has one cause oil is pass through the turbo to lub and cool the bearing there. The turbo could go up to 1000C under hard driving and will heat up the oil.
Oil cooler is not needed for NA unless you race all day long on track. Oil cooler may be bad in winter for NA car. The OEM one that pass coolant around the filter is good cause it'll keep oil warm enough in winter. Oil cooler with a rad might get temp too low in winter.
