Backlinks from subdomains are external backlinks or internal backlinks?

If you trust the guys at MOZ, Rand Fishkin has been quoted as saying:

Quote:
Subdomains SOMETIMES inherit and pass link/trust/quality/ranking metrics between one another
Subfolders ALWAYS inherit and pass link/trust/quality/ranking metrics across the same subdomain
And if you think Google doesn't know what's going on:

Quote:
Google will automatically treat the subdomain as part of the main domain if it thinks they are part of the same site and run by the same person or company.
Mueller has said similar things on video where they'll "try to figure out" what's going on and treat domains and sub's accordingly.

Backlinks from sub-domains are still internal backlinks because the root domain does not change in sub-domain.

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 weekly, links will have same effects as those from different sites.

If you own the root domain, the backlinks will be counted as internal else it would be considered as external links.
