They most certainly are roundabouts. It depends how they are signed,
but they are considered to be roundabouts. Non-signalised roundabouts
are becoming increasingly rare. Most signalised roundabouts do not have
signals on all roads, those still operate on the normal roundabout
priority.

Telford, for example, was designed in the 1960s by throwing a packet of
polo mints onto a large piece of paper or was it two packets? These
days many of the busier roundabouts have signals, to suddenly declare
them not roundabouts would be ridiculous.
