this is the major update to grub2 zfs module; the work is based on Oracle code drops from Solaris 11, and Illumos.

IANAL but I suspect such changes require at least submission from
someone with Oracle E-Mail

the oracle related bits are from:

which states clearly: 
"The source code for open source software and firmware components, as licensed under the applicable open source licenses, may be found by following the links below.”

And grub code has open source license and is included in links provided by this page. Therefore I see no problem using this published source just as well as grub is using for example, the libgcrypt from gnupg  or using bits from illumos - which is just as open source as grub. The copyright lines added by Oracle are preserved, just as well as for other entities who have contributed updates to openzfs.

adding up a bit more; the parent page of this link (   Go back to Source Code for Open Source Software Components) is stating the intent and purpose more clearly. If we still need more clarification, it is possible to get it, but so far I have felt quite ok with it:)
