That's an interesting problem...



Virtuoso will optionally query a graph as if subclass, subproperty,
owl:sameAs owl:InverseFunctionalProperty and some other select features were
materialized according to an ontology.

This does not involve materializing the entailed triples, the processing is
done at run time, backward chaining style.  The feature is optional.
