Each core looks like to oracle a cpu ... this is not a throttling or hard/soft partitioning mechanism.
Never heard of anyone trying to set it directly ... oracle picks it up from the operating system.
If you have a system that does some kind of hard partition of cpu resources then oracle only see's what is available in that partition ( so sets CPU_COUNT correctly ).
There's a bunch of info in metalink on this ...
