Perhaps he was referring to the difference between Enterprise edition and standard edition.

Since when? And where it is written?
That's not true.
See licensing guide
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/license.112/e10594/editions.htm#BABDJGGI for complete info what is and what isn't extra cost option.
Actually from installed instance with extra cost options (which are available only for enterprise edition) you CANNOT understand whether option is legally installed and used or not. This information you have to find in some adminsitration and licensing docs between your organization and reseller. There is no way to get to know that from installed instance because installation process has nothing to do with license documents.
