Search engines appearing in Referral traffic report

When looking through my referral traffic report I have noticed that there are search engines in this such as uk.search.yahoo.com and search.bt.

 

I access the referral traffic report by going into Acquisition > All Traffic > Referral

 

My questions are:

1) Does anyone know why they are classed as referral?

2) Is there a way to get rid of them from the report without creating a segment and created lots of excludes in the advanced filter?

Source dimension: The sources which referred traffic. Includes sources identified via utm_source.

 

I am not sure how it can be removed without having filters/segment.
