Is it possible that the person that started the instance used the wrong init.ora?

Perhaps they used an init.ora with a low setting for license_max_users.

There is nothing to worry.

License High Water Mark in Alert Log:
=====================================
 
When shutting down the database, you notice various numbers being generated for the license high water mark. According to the 8i Server Reference Guide, the license high water mark number in the column of v$license represents the highest number of concurrent users sessions since the instance started.
           
 
    Example:
 
    Shutting down instance (normal)
    License high water mark = 3
 
 
You can query the V$LICENSE data dictionary view for the high water mark, it is sessions_highwater column.  Also, the current limits for all of the license settings, the current number of sessions, and the maximum number of concurrent sessions for the instance can be queried in V$LICENSE.
 
    SQL> select sessions_max s_max, sessions_warning s_warning,
         sessions_current s_current, sessions_highwater s_high, users_max
         from v$license;
 
              S_MAX   S_WARNING   S_CURRENT      S_HIGH   USERS_MAX
         ----------  ----------  ----------  ----------  ----------
                  0           0           6           6           0
