I thought that, but vortex generators are used to control the boundary layer and so need only be little stubby things (in comparison), these things are somewhat large (if I'm looking at the right things). Perhaps they are, just not what I would expect from a VG.

My dad said something about the large size needed for the amount of detached flow. He knows that airplane a little more then I do so I'll take his word for it.
