Understanding OS roles and group_names

Hello to all ;

I have difficulties to distinguish OS roles and OS privileges.
This link says ;
Oracle creates  two roles when  install the Oracle executables:
This link says:
OSDBA and OSOPER  are  groups.
Group OSDBA having SYSDBA privilege
Group OSOPER having OSOPER Privilege

My Question in oracle 10g :

OSDBA and OSOPER : are they OS group_name ?
OSDBA and OSOPER : are they OS_roles ?

Please clarify .. thanks
