Well, not really, "opole" is a word from old Polish, or even pre-Polish. It is basically a name of some piece of territory occupied and farmed by some group of settlers. So it is basically settlement or group of settlements which additionaly has some duties toward some prince etc.:

Opolanie – West Slavic tribe that lived in the region of upper Odra. Their main settlement (gród) was Opole. They were mentioned in the Bavarian Geographer, under the name Opolini, as one of the seven tribes living in Silesia (Silesian tribes) [...]

The name Opolanie derives from a Slavic term opole, that meant a specific form of self-governing used among the West Slavs [...] wikipedia
