Some people think Penguin is already incorporated into the algo, meaning it is constantly running.

Whether or not Penguin was a good thing, it certainly has destroyed a lot of SME's and their business due to abrupt algorithmic changes. Let's not forget that.

Check it out, Google indexing Bing's Jellyfish results...
Back in 2007, Microsoft acquired Jellyfish.com, a comparative shopping engines. Sometime recently, it seems Microsoft set up a 302 redirect from Jellyfish.com to Bing's search results for [jellyfish].

Resources are not either indexed or noindexed, because they are composed by many different and separated parts. In this cases, Google has not indexed the resource but only its URL and the text of backlinks pointing to the URL.

You can even let Google index URLs that send 404 HTTP status or whatever status code you want. Just ask the crawler not to request them, so that Google will not know what status code is sent. That's what's happening in this case.
