I guess the question is, how would google know *not* to index them ? As
soon as they are linked to (or more likely they re-use an expired domain
name that is already in the google database) they will be indexed. They
may be obviously autogenerated to a human, but it's a lot harder for a
computer to tell.
It seems that google indexes sites of dubious value - but gives them a
low pagerank. This means they do appear in results, but only if there is
nothing more relevant available.
All the best,
