See below: Soya beans are high in protein, which can lead to formation of stones. Soya bean oil is fat and should be ok to take in kidney stones. In general be careful with amount of fats for other health reasons.

Oxalate: Oxalate is the culprit in beans; the solid soy bean has more oxalate than soy oil, for sure; so eating soy beans will more likely increase stone potential compared to soy oil, which you may use in cooking or on a salad. The oxalate rich foods are: beets, spinach, rhubarb, strawberries, nuts, chocolate, tea, wheat bran, and all dry beans; minimize these; drink 3-4 liters fluid per day;
