Not a lot of information on that package in the 10g docs.  My guess is that package was new to 10g.  My other guess is that in 11g, it does tings for you that 10g didn't.

Never used that package but based on the error message (in the 11g docs):
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e17766/e46000.htm

ORA-46258: Cleanup not initialized for the audit trail
    Cause: DBMS_AUDIT_MGMT.INIT_CLEANUP was not called for the erroring audit trail.
    Action: Invoke the procedure, DBMS_AUDIT_MGMT.INIT_CLEANUP.

I was able to find the description of innit_cleanup in the 10g docs:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11062_01/admin.1023/e11059/avadm_app_d_audit_mgmt.htm#BABFHEFH

when running the cleanup

BEGIN
DBMS_AUDIT_MGMT.CLEAN_AUDIT_TRAIL(
   audit_trail_type => DBMS_AUDIT_MGMT.AUDIT_TRAIL_DB,
   use_last_arch_timestamp => TRUE);
END;
/

get error at line, column 37
PLS 302 component "AUDIT_TRAIL_DB' must be declared

Are you looking at the 10g docs?  Use what you ind on the Internet as a good starting point but refer to the online docs for your specific version for the final say.

From them, they post the valid values for audit_trail_type:
