We've carried out many independent Oracle Java audits across different estate types. It is fair to say that a Java review is less trivial compared to 'classic' Oracle products and requires a lot of declarative input : in the absence of these declaratives, I am sure you can guess what will happen. It is not safe to assume Oracle will check 'only' the version of Java--they will scrutinise way more than that.
It is usually best to tackle desktop and server estates separately and also to consider commercial features on that basis - e.g. MSI installer is typically used (if anywhere) on desktop estates, JMC/JFR are typically used on server estates. Consideration needs to be given as to what, if any scripts, you would be willing to run pan-estate (all servers, all desktops); i would say more than ever there's a case to give this very serious consideration: i.e. you do not have to run any scripts provided by Oracle but you should consider how you are going to evidence your position.
