Ketones are produced during periods of low food intake (e.g. fasting, even overnight fasting); carbohydrate restricted diets, starvation, prolonged intense exercise generally when glucose for energy is not available or sufficient thus fats are broken down and ketones are produced.

Therefore coconut oil on its own should not make the difference in ketone levels.
