Even though they are closed, as long as they were closed for "lack of use" or "at your request", they will show as a plus on most credit scoring algorithms. Specially on Mortgage and Personal loans and Insurance.  If they were closed in "Collection" then they are a minus.
You credit reports reflects the last 7-10 years of your credit history,

Good bad or indifferent it's your history. It can be difficult to get things changed so we all need to be aware of how actions we take with our money will reflect on your credit history.

They fall off after 7 years because they are part of your credit history.  You likely have noticed a decline in your credit score since the cards were closed and that is due to the reduction in available credit caused by the closures.
