You can voluntarily give up your rights to free speech in the US.

I think part of the reason they don't want people doing this, is because
if you don't configure their database well, you can make it look bad

Not if you signed a contract that says you can't.
If you didn't actually sign an agreement saying you wouldn't publish
benchmarks, then you might have a case. You might argue that a click
through eula isn't a valid contract or that you are a third party
who isn't bound by whatever agreement the person who installed Oracle
made. However it probably would cost you a bundle to have a chance
