OGE is Oracle Grid Engine, which is rumoured to be trademarked, though I
couldn't find a registration.

[We don't have to imagine such things in Emacs -- multiple features
can/do modify the buffer of found files. The correct Emacs analogy is
surely clobbering Customized definitions.]

I thought the issue was that you _didn't_ change it? The input CULL
data are mis-interpreted, so there's not much you can do to preserve
them without implementing slot-wise support.
Qmon is maintained in SoGE, but this is non-trivial to fix and in the
absence of incentives there are more important issues. As far as I can
tell, it's only a problem if you use qmon with qconf-set slot-wise
subordination (which seems pretty buggy anyway).
