I read a lot about Oracle Licensing.One thing that confuses me is if Oracle Comes for Audit how will they differentiate between a Prod Enterprise Edition Environment and a Dev/Test Enterprise Edition Environment?

Yes but if you have a problem with a database you declare as "dev/test" then it will be at the lowest priority for them. So it is how you can support to have a production database off line during several days or even weeks.

It makes no difference financially, so does it really matter?

It depends on the contract, some customers can get a lower license price (or even free) for dev/test databases but with the counterpart than a SR cannot be escalated (or even raise) for these ones.
