The licensing datasheet is for VMs, for example if you need your host to run three VMs instead of two. You need to meet the minimum.
So if you have 16 or more cores, then you must license all of those cores again in order to get permission to spin up two more VMs.
If you have no need for VMs, then they are working fine.
Hope above information can help you.
