Not that I am aware of.  There are new jobs and new names for older jobs (with additional functionality) but no scheduler jobs that I've found in rebuild objects.  Here is a run-down of the jobs I've found in  
This job ages out data in the autotask repository, deleting obsolete entries. 2. HM_CREATE_OFFLINE_DICTIONARY
Creates offline dictionary for Database Repair Advisor. 3. DRA_REEVALUATE_OPEN_FAILURES
Re-evaluates open failures for the Database Recovery Advisor (used for assistance in case of loss or corruption of datafiles, redo log files or controlfiles).  Executes dbms_ir.reevaluateopenfailures. 4. MGMT_CONFIG_JOB
Collects database configuration information for OCM. 5. MGMT_STATS_CONFIG_JOB
OCM Statistics collection job; runs ORACLE_OCM.MGMT_CONFIG.collect_stats. 6. BSLN_MAINTAIN_STATS_JOB
Runs the  BSLN_MAINTAIN_STATS_PROG program on the BSLN_MAINTAIN_STATS_SCHED schedule to keep baseline statistics current. 7. XMLDB_NFS_CLEANUP_JOB
Runs the procedure dbms_xdbutil_int.cleanup_expired_nfsclients. 8. RSE$CLEAN_RECOVERABLE_SCRIPT
Calls sys.dbms_streams_auto_int.clean_recoverable_script to clean up unrecoverable STREAMS transactions. 9. SM$CLEAN_AUTO_SPLIT_MERGE
Performs cleanup activities on the auto split merge views. David Fitzjarrell

Subject: Unrecoverable transactions in 11G R2

Yesterday, we upgraded one of our Oracle EBS DEV databases to Oracle 11G R2.  This morning we received an email alert that around 10:30 p.m. last night, about a dozen and a half tablespaces had an unrecoverable transaction.  Is there some new Oracle scheduled job that rebuilds objects automatically?  Our system was STILL DOWN for the upgrade so all EBS processes were down and users locked out.  The only thing left has to be an Oracle supplied process that caused it.
