No there will be no type-3 link entry for these links.
Note however, that even if a router is used purely
for forwarding, i.e., it has only unnumbered p2p interfaces,
it will still have at least one IP address and this address
most probably (but not necessarily) will be included
in the OSPF domain and announced to other routers as
a type-3 link.

I don't know what exactly you mean by "a host".
Anyway, if OSPF is enabled on the link, the "previous" router
will announce a type-3 without a type-1.
