They are allowed to have double intent, meaning they are permitted to apply for lawful permanent residency (green card) while in O-1 status.

EB-1 Petitions for Aliens of Extraordinary Ability, Professors and Researchers (Priority Workers Petitions)

The EB-1 is an immigrant visa (green card) available for aliens of extraordinary ability in science, art, business, athletics, education, teaching and research who achieved national or international acclaim in their field. A qualified alien does not need a US employer to sponsor him for this type of green card, therefore, no labor certification is required. Additionally, an alien applying for EB-1 green card should prove that he intends to work in the field of his extraordinary ability and that he had an ability to make a significant contribution to benefit the US.
