No they are not analog, these are properly inserted digital channels,
they just don't have names because they are raw MPEG channels and not
true ATSC channels. Where did you read they were analog?

Oops! This is your mistake. You should just rename the channels that
the MythTV scanner inserts, preferably using the Frontend Channel
Editor. To manually insert digital channels you need a command of
SQL and you need to create not just the channel table row, but also
a matching dtv_multiplex table row with the frequency, modulation, etc.
