Did you check the value of create_stored_outlines when you set this session parameter? I ask because I wondered why you could not find the parameter value in v$parameter / v$spparameter which I tested. Then I found Oracle note: Session Parameter: USE_STORED_OUTLINES #ID 68642.1 which says the session parameter is not a database parameter. However, the parameter turns on and off generating outlines and create seems like it might be a fit.

I just do not have a system I think I can risk testing on right now.
