I agree being an SRE exposes one to kind of problems that can occur in large scale production systems, the problems which one might not have thought during development or not unearthed during QA. But I think being oncall is flipside of being a SRE. To me being Oncall is oncall, be it be from home or oncall from office. If you are oncall during non-working hours, except what you save for the commute to being on office, your focus is drawn away from what you are doing (might be spending time with family, or book/movie you are enjoying, sleeping, or working on your project).
