Most likely they’re not. Microsoft set up the Windows Store in order to have some sort of control over the development of Metro apps and ensure a certain level of safety. If an app is hosted on a 3rd party site instead of the Windows Store, you can pretty much assume that the developers of that app wanted to hide something, otherwise they’d put the app into the Windows Store.
