    internal.

    If they have good metrics, they are still worth a lot.

    Technically they will be internal.
    But google very well understands web 2.0 sites. So for popular platforms like blogspot or weebly, links will have same effects as those from different sites.

    Links from the subdomains count as internal backlinks.

    Go by IP, if its same IP then it will hardly be external.

    I would say they are neither entirely internal nor external. May be Google could give some juice for subdomains.
