No, sorry for the confusion if any. They aren't excluded from ronots.txt but only password protected.
My question - is there any differential treatment for password protected pages vs robot.txt excluded pages in Google SERPS? We know that robots.txt excluded pages show up as link only stubs in SERPS with a description posted by the OP. But what about password protected pages? If they don't show up in SERPS at all, why this differential treatment?
