I believe plants add a lot of oxygen to the water (some of it is used at night). I can actually see streams of fine bubbles coming out of leaves during intense photosynthesis. Some plants are "pearling" oxygen if light is over 3-4 w/g, CO2 and right ferts. Water is oversaturated with oxygen, it cannot dissolve any more, the entire tank looks like a glass of champagne.
Surface agitation is detrimental to aquatic plants because it helps dissipate little CO2 that accumulates from decomposition, fish respiration, bacteria activities, etc.
