During some licensing training I got from oracle, it was stated that the custom install is always an enterprise install. Even if you don't select any of the enterprise options.

my experience with 11g is a mixed bag.
Installed 220.127.116.11 at a customer site as a demo on T1000/Solaris 10 and ran into problem when I showed them how to apply a patchset (18.104.22.168): the SE installation became EE with all features on. Wonder if the next release then phones home?
Oracle has a history of doing that - assuming you are checking via the banner - You also can't do a custom SE install on at least some versions, it then gets reported as EE via v$version. DBA_REGISTRY seems to be reliable though for installed features at least though I'd like it to list features and options (yes I know about v$option) so that people knew what they had installed. Still one windows patch supplied a debug dll for distributed transactions that then stopped TPMs working at all!
