I was looking at route-views.routeviews.org for the BGP routes and i

Is this the case?
I guess they aren't.
Yes, but aggregation in the BGP protocol is a relic from the BGP3-to-
BGP4 transition, AFAIK it's rarely used these days.
I am under the impression that AS_SETs are generated whenever there
are some routes that are aggregated.
