It's a fossil of fashions past. A number of years ago there was a fad for object-oriented everything. When it reached Oracle, they decided to add objects to tables, so they could say they're O-O, too. Not many people use the feature; occasionally someone decides it's a great idea and they try to use it, but they usually only do that once.

Mind you, it does get used a a few specialised areas. I can't imagine Spatial being very usable without it.
