What you're probably seeing is large clusters of thunderstorms associated with the lift of outflow boundaries and differential heating casused by eddies of warmer water. These storms are most likely temporary because they do not have a supporting UL feature.
EDIT: I don't believe they can form new tropical systems based on the above reasoning and the fact they are mesoscale features and hurricanes are synoptic scale features.
