In brief: Not specific to CSF

For the oligoclonal banding result to be called positive, there have to be bands in CSF that are not present in serum. In your case there were no bands in CSF that were not present in the serum, The CSF bands were derived from serum not from synthesis in the brain.
Your result is a good sign.
