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
when it shouldn't.

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
at winning.
