It is very unlikely that Oracle sets the registry variables during startup, unless some startupscript is used. I have never seen this happen before. But since you have seen this actually happen, it seems to be that Oracle does indeed remove them...
Could you try to see what happens when you start your database from a remote client, using SQLPLUS and login as "sys as sysdba" ? I'm wondering wether the action is started from within the database or by sqlplus itself using some script....
