Not sure I understand the question, but the number of objects isn't limited by the license.

Yes.  The primary limitations for the base license is the number of users and VLANs.

"vpn peers: 12" ?

Where are you seeing that?  IIRC, the base license allows for 10 VPN sessions.

VPN peers means you can have up to 12 VPN connections - including remote Access or site to site.

Regarding "objects" - ASA counts how many internal clients Access public interface - this is where you Will hit limit if you have base licence with 10 users. You can have then 50 or unlimited users - with licence upgrade of course.
