I just noticed that in list of currently logged-in users (at bottom when board index is shown) we have regularry some bots as google etc... Can we expect some posts from them maybe ?

They are just indexing the site for their search engines.

But there is no need for them to show up as users. Do they really fake accounts just for indexing or does PHPBB simply detect that they browse through the forum without being logged in at all?

I'm guessing PHPBB detects them and shows them as "in trawl" mode hoovering up all the new articles for their search engines. I think there's a setting inside the admin panel to either hide them or something .. will have a proper look at some point.
