Yes but then no one but the members of the group can execute these programs... but I think this what you want.

I just wanted to have confirmation that if i have rman backup and want to restore it to any other new server, the backup will not be disturb due to this action.

Then i can do chmod 750 to import export and datapump export and datapump import files too

Sure it will not if you have consistent user and group numbers across your network. If not, maybe you have to change the privileges on backup files before restoring. It also depends where you back up (disk, tape).
