Probably, this is because the low and high groups are interchanged.
The threefold decomposition depends on this (have a look at the
formulas in the helpfile).

Say, your oaxaca command is

 . oaxaca est1 est2, tf

Then try

 . oaxaca est1 est2, tf asis

If it does not change, type

 . oaxaca est2 est2, tf asis

Or, alternatively, change the coding of the by-variable in the oaxaca2 call.
