XF 1.1 /posts/ urls being indexed by Google?

No, there is no circumstance where a /posts link is not given a proper 301. If Google ignores the redirect and indexes it improperly, there's not much XenForo can do except redirect when it is hit. I also believe any /posts/ link is nofollow'd by default.
That is my concern. Maybe @Mike can chime in here with more insight.

I'm not really sure what to add -- if you look at the network trace, the 301 is very clear.

It's not really harmful to disallow following it as it's generally just going to lead to threads that are already indexed and it's usually not the sort of URL that would be linked to by a user (it's not exposed in too many cases).
