No, that is impossible.
Package creation is a DDL statement. When DDL is performed on the package, the package will be locked until the operation is performed.
If the package (procedure/function) is executing on any RAC instances, you'll be unable to compile a new version of a package until it terminates.

If you still wish to verify it manually, to have a peace of mind then:
1)Connect directly to different instances as sysdba
2)Query dba_source.
Example:
select * from dba_source where owner = 'MYSCHEMA' AND NAME = 'MY_PACKAGE' AND TYPE='PACKAGE BODY';

Open in new window

3)Compare output

-----

If you need more "evidence", create a very long running procedure. Run it on one instance, and try to make changes to the package on another instance at the same time. It won't be possible.
