Yes, the OID is included in the index computation.

Thank you.

Could/Should the software automatically reindex the directory after OID
change or - if not possible - inform the administrator with a message
that such reindexing should be done manually?

No. It is our policy to expect sysadmins to know what they're doing. Admins should know that OIDs are meant to be constants; you should have very good reasons for changing them, otherwise you should never change them.
