The smiley face signs .. Are they cameras too?

I've had bloody 4 speeding fines recently from the same general area, around Aigle VD.. I'm generally not a speeder, I've had 1 fine in 4 years then 4 in a month!!
They are minor, like 51 in 50 zone (after adjustment) or 85 in an 80 zone..

Anyways.. I didn't see any cameras but what I did see were lots of those signs which display your speed followed by an angry or smiley face.

Normally when i come from an 80 to 50 i just lift off the gas in plenty time and slow down naturally, sometimes the sign shows 56-54-51-48 smile face as i reach it..

Have these signs actually been fining me? Or have I passed a hidden camera?

** As a side note, after paying the fines, i got another mail from the police apologising that one camera was not working properly and asked for my IBAN to refund me some money! The had charged me 120 and it should have been 40..
