As you have found out different folks have different opinions.
Here is mine.
I would not use grease as it will just be pushed out of the bearing surfaces over time and become a lint collector.
The rear bearings are are usually oilite type so should not require lubrication.
Not sure about the idler wheel.

In any case I always put a drop or two of 3 in 1 or any good oil on the shafts when replacing these parts. As long as you do not go crazy with the oil it will not cause a problem and does help the parts wear in properly.
