Which version?
In 10g, a select <variable> from dual doesn't cause any logical IOs (unless
disabled explictitly).

Also, which stats were you checking when comparing different sequence cache
values? Amount of LIOs should only change as much of them is needed for
updating data dictionary when we run out of cached values.
