Yes, those are typically used for GPU skinning. Blend indices are usually 4 8-bit unsigned integers indicating which bones should be used to transform the vertex, while the blend weights are 4 8-bit integers (reinterpreted as [0, 1] floating point values) that tell you how much each bone affects the vertex. You can look at the SkinnedMesh sample in the SDK for an example.

Compile the vertex shader using fxc to get corresponding asm listing.

Also, the sample source directory has four assembly versions (for 1 to 4 bones) of the shader with comments.
