Advanced Compression Option and dbconsole

I am sure this has been discussed before, but I can't seem to hit on the search term that will retrieve the answer... :(
The issue is, I've been asked to create a few Oracle 18.104.22.168 databases with dbconsole enabled. The sysman schema that is installed as part of the database console contains two tables, MGMT_POLICIES and MGMT_METRICS that have compression enabled and will trigger a detected usage of the HeapCompression feature in the DBA_FEATURES_USAGE_STATISTICS view.
I've checked 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52, all versions have it. My issue is now: do I by installing the dbconsole expose my clients to additional Oracle lincesing claims? Is the Advanced Compression Option required to run dbconsole?
I would ideally like a published Oracle note that stipulates that these two tables are excluded from the licensing requirement. The licensing guide that is included in the database documentation set is inconclusive.
