Yes, they should reappear, and you then move them to whatever groups you have organized in WSUS (like for us we have an "approved for rollout" group to get updates).

+1, they definitely do come back. Also, if you have a pre-configured computer group (via Group Policy) they will automatically put themselves in it. –  Ben Pilbrow Sep 8 '10 at 13:57
