As you say, they usually break off if you try to pull them-if there is enough to pull on. I suggest you cut them near to flush then flush them with a file which will give a nail punch something to centre on then just punch them below the surface: since it is Oak you can fill the holes with slivers of Oak which will look entirely natural.
I have recently done just that with some reclaimed timber and saved much time and frustration.
