Not necessarily. 9i did not use NUMA for shared segments, although it did use NUMA for private memory areas. 10gR2 changed that and configured both shared and private memory for NUMA which results it multiple shared memory segments created at startup. This depends upon your hardware configuration and O/S (both must be NUMA-enabled) but without setting additional parameters or applying a patch 10gR2 can start multiple shared memory segments and you may not know it's being done.
