An interesting bit of info:
The only file that has grp of dba is the one I created as a test:

[root ~]# mount
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 on / type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
none on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol02 on /home type ext3 (rw)
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol04 on /tmp type ext3 (rw)
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol03 on /var type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
/dev/dm-14 on /u01 type ext3 (rw)
/dev/dm-12 on /u02 type ext3 (rw)
/dev/dm-17 on /u03 type ext3 (rw)
/dev/dm-18 on /u04 type ext3 (rw)
/dev/dm-16 on /u05 type ext3 (rw)
/dev/dm-13 on /u06 type ext3 (rw)
/dev/dm-15 on /u07 type ext3 (rw)
//util/linux on /mnt/orutil type cifs (rw,mand)

[root ~]# find / -mount -group dba
/root/tmp/x
[root ~]# find /u0? -mount -group dba
[root ~]#
