12.2.0.1 version Database

DBMS_DATAPUMP producing additional/excessive audit records after applying October PSU 2019.

Using dbms_datapump for daily schema level refresh via database link from source to target. Before the patch the dbms_datapump job produced 2194 audit records on the source database, after the patch the dbms_datapump job produced 133716 audit records. The 500% increase in records is causing significant growth of the SYSAUX tablespace.

Excessive query against SYS._user_stat_varray table. No auditing enabled for SELECT command, but high count of audit records generated for 'SELECT' action and the sql_text of the audit records shows select statement from SYS._user_stat_varray table.
