oc-basic.el is relying on built-in bibtex.el. AFAIK, bibtex.el does not
support @string abbreviations.

The problem with parsebib is that it does not even have license
(I do not see any in https://github.com/joostkremers/parsebib). If
parsebib were a part of Emacs core or at least a part of ELPA, we would
also be able to use it in Org core.

Or one could extend bibtex.el with abbreviation support.
