I think they are neodyme magnets.

This is my BM2408-21 (similar to BP21):

Geez all I know is they make pretty good power for a cheap motor. Look lie Neo's to me, maybe Cheapodyminium? :)

Most magnets in rewound/cdrom-style motors nowadays are neodymium. Usually anywhere from N40-N50. I don't know of any rebuilds that use cobalt.

Ghost, where's Gimp? Haven't heard him lately.
