Radiators are not full of oil usually about 80% - Oils used are diathermic which allows a greater transfer of heat.

You can buy diathermic oils through this company - https://www.applegate.co.uk/b2b-products-services/56096a90624511e3bf0a005056822514.html -- Not a good idea to have an element switched on when out of the medium it is trying to heat. In this case yes it would burn out. This is why you tip a oil filled radiator so that the element and fill end are upwards and usually co-located.
