Oracle may be using selinux or linux capabilities to restrict changing file or group ownership. CH_CHOWN will restrict even root from using chown or chgrp. Selinux can protect particular areas from having ownership changed.

A directory with oracleuser ownership probably should be left alone. It may be configured to protect you from yourself.

You will need to provide more details on what directories you are trying to change. Also Oracle customer support might be able to clear up any questions on which areas you shouldn't mess with for the database to work.
