Why is होता used in some sentences but not others?

Using होता है instead of just है adds a sense of permanence, like you are saying "Oil is not salty, and it will always be this way," some other sentences you could phrase it this way with: केले पीले होते हैं = Bananas are yellow, चींटियां छोटी होती हैं = Ants are small
