I am not a pro of SQL, but was tracing how stored procedures working in a database to troubleshoot. I found this sp_OAXXXX procedures, but I can't find under any database or system stored procedures.
The database was backed up from our phone system server and restored to one of our test servers with SQL 2005. Where are these sp_OAXXX coming from?

Those are OLE Automation Stored Procedures (Transact-SQL)

"These system stored procedures run as extended stored procedures, and the OLE Automation objects that are executed through the stored procedures run in the address space of an instance of the SQL Server Database Engine in the same way that an extended stored procedure runs."
