Don't know if this helps, but check SAP Note #608726. In part it states:
"When AIX loads a shared library into memory the image of that library
is kept in memory even if no process is using the library. If the ondisk
copy of the library is altered then applications using that
still use the in-memory copy and not the updated disk copy. This is normal expected behaviour on AIX.
In the case of applying an Oracle Patch Set then shutting down all the
the instances , listeners and applications still leaves shared
in memory (eg: libjox9.a stays in memory). Application of the patchset updates the disk copy, but subsequent startup of an instance uses the in-memory library images (if they are still present). Hence the version banner can show the old release, and upgrade steps may fail as the instance is running an unsupported combination of libraries."
Suggestion is to run slibclean before you patch, but with what you're experiencing, it may prove beneficial to run it now.
