Not exactly - it doesn't depend on how you set your dbtimezone, it
depends on how you set your sessiontimezone and how you set your time
zone when you (or the application - Oracle itself in this case) entered
the data into the TSTZ column.  If it is entered as an offset, then
that's what you'll see, if it's entered as a timezone region, then
you'll see that.

Of course the results you get from "select dbtimezone from dual" will
depend on how you set your dbtimezone.

I think that depends on how you set your dbtimezone?
