I think it is perfectly acceptable if it is considered as a simple turn instead of negotiating a roundabout, from a routing perspective. An instruction to turn right at the junction would not be improved by an instruction to take the third exit. If the navigator knows that a junction is a mini roundabout, an instruction to turn right at the (mini) roundabout would probably be optimal.

I regard these things as a hazard! I find them difficult to see! I have gone over one at speed without realising it was there .. only to realise it once over it.

They are not large enough to sensibly map as a circular way.
