Ah... time to open the bag of worms
It depends on how much you believe the advertising.
The O ring is to seal the lubricant inside the rollers that is put there in the manufacturing process.
The oil that you apply is to lubricate the chain rollers over the sprocket and the link plates as they move.
The stuff you buy in a spray can has an adhesive agent that helps it stay on.
It also attracts grit
You could use gear oil (EP 90/140) applied with a rag.
You could use chainsaw blade oil that has high adhesion and anti-fling properties, but its not as thick, which is just what your chain needs.
Its cheap. You can get a 5ltr can for €10 or less.
