Yes, see
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/licenses/instant-client-lic-152016.html for
license conditions on e.g. oracle-instantclient12.1-basic which ships
/usr/lib/oracle/12.1/client64/lib/libclntsh.so.12.1 .  php-oci8 depends upon
Oracle's Instant Client libraries.

It has conditions like "you do not charge your end users for use of the
Programs" and "prohibit the reverse engineering (unless required by law for
interoperability), disassembly or decompilation of the Programs".  So clearly
