Your question is actually:
Does that means that on "Automake" the test are not being executed
when build packages (aka make all)?
It has nothing to do with Gentoo...

Executing tests is optional in Automake, Gentoo and manual sequence as
there is no point of introducing additional dependencies and run
additional builds if tests are not to run.

Exactly because of this check_PROGRAMS exists and should be used for
targets that are used for check target.
