I don't think of either. I see lightly hardened shapes born out of a mixture of dust and moisture making a delicate cement, and most likely the shape
is reborn over time and time again, with erosion from both wind and dust.
I mean, what did NASA concentrate with Curiosity firstly for their experiments? It was this guy Jake Matijevic who is an out of place rock, let's
call him, 'Jake the peg'
go to the link here;
You can see from that link the difficulties they have with 'Jake the peg' when even the Earth based science is somewhat controversial, NASA is not so
bothered with exotic shapes of congealed sand. There are some shapes in Arken's linked pictures that do look like rocks, but they are also the most
unlikely contenders for vertebrae looking objects.

There is symmetry in geology
There is symmetry in life
Simply put, you do not bring a rock to a life fight.
If you are looking for life, you pick the objects that display the symmetry of life, as subjects for sample. You do not overlook those objects and
prefer an out of place blue triangular rock... that goes in the geology section.
