Database-specific tables owned by SYS or SYSTEM never get exported with a full export. The list of SYS objects exported with a full export is:
DEF$_AQCALL DEF$_AQERROR DEF$_CALLDEST DEF$_DEFAULTDEST DEF$_DESTINATION DEF$_ERROR DEF$_LOB DEF$_ORIGIN DEF$_PROPAGATOR DEF$_PUSHED_TRANSACTIONS DEF$_TEMP$LOB PLAN_TABLE REPCAT$_AUDIT_ATTRIBUTE REPCAT$_AUDIT_COLUMN REPCAT$_COLUMN_GROUP REPCAT$_CONFLICT REPCAT$_DDL REPCAT$_FLAVORS REPCAT$_FLAVOR_OBJECTS REPCAT$_GENERATED REPCAT$_GROUPED_COLUMN REPCAT$_KEY_COLUMNS REPCAT$_OBJECT_PARMS REPCAT$_PARAMETER_COLUMN REPCAT$_PRIORITY REPCAT$_PRIORITY_GROUP REPCAT$_REFRESH_TEMPLATES REPCAT$_REPCAT REPCAT$_REPCATLOG REPCAT$_REPCOLUMN REPCAT$_REPGROUP_PRIVS REPCAT$_REPOBJECT REPCAT$_REPPROP REPCAT$_REPSCHEMA REPCAT$_RESOLUTION
REPCAT$_RUNTIME_PARMS REPCAT$_SNAPGROUP REPCAT$_TEMPLATE_OBJECTS REPCAT$_TEMPLATE_PARMS REPCAT$_TEMPLATE_SITES REPCAT$_USER_AUTHORIZATIONS REPCAT$_USER_PARM_VALUES SQLPLUS_PRODUCT_PROFILE
Which doesn't mean you can't specify which SYS-owned table or tables you want exported:
exp file=aud.dmp tables=aud$ log=aud.log ....
which resulted in

Export done in WE8MSWIN1252 character set and AL16UTF16 NCHAR character set

Export terminated successfully without warnings.
Granted, I don't have auditing running on that database, but the table was exportable when specified in the tables list.
