  You edited the default configuration and broke it.  Don't do that.

  This error does not occur in the default configuration.

  The file "/etc/raddb/mods-config/sql/main/oracle/queries.conf" is loaded from the SQL module.  It has nothing to do with redis.

  It can, unless you break the configuration.

  Nothing.  That attribute is in the dictionaries.  Not the configuration files.

  It appears you added the file "/etc/raddb/mods-config/sql/main/oracle/queries.conf" to mods-enabled.  Why, I don't know.

  If you do something and the server breaks, you should probably *undo* that.  The server will then work.

  If you have a *problem* that you need help with, ask about the problem.  Right now, you've implemented a broken solution, and then are asking why the solution doesn't work.
