Some topsites have links such as out.php?id=#*$!x. Does this actually prevent google from registering it as a link (provided that out.php is a redirect to a different domain) and therefore NOT increase the PR of the site being linked to? I've been wondering about this for some time.

I don't believe redirected links pass PR.
Thats why the advice is often given to submit links only to SE 'friendly' directories. Or only those that use direct links.

a redirect link is unfair reciprocal linking. They are trying to gain the PR from your link without returning any. It's all cheating, but if you are actively exchanging links, you should avoid a site that uses this type of link.
