If it requires a bunch of configuration, I agree it is just V. But if
there's an orchestration layer that informs all other systems of its
presence, including management and licensing, without having to configure
all that, then it is NFV. Now, whether the aforementioned vendors are
actually doing this, that can be debated (and I'd be curious to hear
people's options on it). They may just be doing V with a long-term vision
of NFV, I don't know.
