Is Open VMS openware or freeware?

I came across some links showing OpenVMS freewares. Does that mean Open VMS is freeware or the freeware packages available which can be used on open VMS systems?

No. (How do you define "open system"?)

Freeware packages exist which can be used on
VMS (or, as the trademark owner now calls it,
OpenVMS).

This doesn't tell me much about what you
read.

Hobbyist (non-commercial) users can use VMS
at little or no cost, however.

Open VMS is not freeware. There are freewares available which can be used on open VMS systems.
