Ive heard people say links from such pages were generally useless......
Personally, I woudnt jump to conclusions like that, because if an important site has a resources section with carefully selected links/sites (meaning not 100s, but 6 or 7), I dont see why this should not count as a "vote".
I assume only google's algorithm knows......but anyone made any relevant observations perhaps?

For one of my sites I have a few links from our suppliers, who are generally manufacturers. These are obviously genuinely useful pages to their visitors, and I feel genuine (albeit commercially tinged) votes for us. On their sites they usually have a dedicated page as a suppliers' list with links. In many ways this is not far from a generic links page and in some cases the generic wording along the lines of 'resources' or 'links to our stockists', so a 'stupid' bot could well toss in the bin with any other links page.
I find that we get some decent and converting traffic from these types of links, which further reinforces my belief that this is a useful resource and not just commercial toss; so it seems logical to me that, if G has thought the process through this far and logic says they could have, then G would count these links as genuine votes on some level.
Just my take on it, but I don't see that the generic title should destroy the credibility when all the other things line up.
