Models. But only SporeModder supports deformable part models, so you're going to have to wait a while :U

I remember that one of the folks who worked on Spore mentioned in a demonstration that the "morphs" are actually animations (similar to how morphs work in Flash). So in a nutshell, SporeModder would work by importing a morphing animation in your part.

Here's proof:

Exactly, they are just animations like movements are (but morphs have some extra properties, like the handle position).
