Are the Watchers in the Dark daemons?

Reading the Horus Heresy series of books, the diminuitive Watchers in the Dark make selective appearances in the books concerning the Dark Angels. 
 
Background-wise, they appear at critical junctures: e.g. just prior to the Emporor arriving, and so are believed to be heralds of great things.  They appear to be impervious to physical assault and warp related events, they are probably powerful psykers; and more-over may even have lectured the Lion about chaos.  So my question for crowd-sourcing today is this: are they some kind of strange daemon? I've heard it said that they might even be Cabal agents. Or maybe they are something else altogether that is native to Caliban?  Thoughts anyone?

No idea what they are but I would love it if they turned out to be related to the cabal as I loved Legion. Are they mentioned a lot in the dark angel heresy books? Might have to check them out.

Look closely at the models. They're wearing little suits of power armor under there.

@Lumiere: yes -- I noticed that once you pointed it out. But, they were on Caliban prior to the Emperor's arrival and the Crusade. So them wearing armour is either a throwback to Caliban Knight days, or a recent development.
