No. There was nothing in this episode's script to suggest they're
genetically engineered by humanity -- the very absence of such detailing
suggests they're an existing species. However, I did form the impression
that it was very convenient for a race of beings so willing to and
desiring of being in service to *someone* to be around during the
awakening of 'The Beast'.
Interesting thing about the Ood. They live to serve. Doesn't matter who,
they like taking orders. If you don't give them orders, they wither and die.
They are telepathically linked, sharing a herd or hive mentality. What one
thinks, they all think, they act as a composite. No individuality.
A comment on fundamentalist religion, maybe? Surely not :-)
