This logic is a variant of the (does a tree make a sound in the forest, if it falls and no one is there to hear it)? principle way of thinking.
In a "nothing to do with the subject at all" kind of way, maybe.
The bots would have a tendency to help each other, self repair and possibly learn to self replicate later, all left to themselves.
There is no learning and certainly no "tendency to help each other" involved in grey goo. This is merely machines doing what they are programmed to do, reproduce, with no control.

Gray goo, was a scenario of what could possibly happen, is nanoswarms, maybe with corrupt programming got together, out of control?
"Holds NOM's hand, assures him that the Viet Cong and Grey goo will not get him"!
They think like a social swarm NOM.The actions of these bots, are only as good as the company and designers that make them.

They don't exist yet, let alone think.

Constructive nanoswarms, proposed areas space exploration and nanotechnologies:
A construction nanoswarm, would be a probable swarm based in part on chit-o-cin-ig semi shell technologies, that closely resemble the actions of insects.
This swarm would be composed of
1.construction workers.These are hard shelled resilient worker, that have jaws that can lift, fashion and compact any substance, that would be placed as a play-tia media, for them to use.
2.Golden area managers: These would be extra intelligent nanobots, that are slightly larger, which would hold micro data bases, which give the direction and consolidated direction of unified constructions.
3.Communications liaisons and communications managers:These are bots that physically go to the locations of construction and observe then report to their golden managers.
4.Soldiers: These are a step up from an insect soldier, that protects the colony.They gather information from the communications lasions and golden managers, to protect the work flow or object mission of the nanoswarm.
*These are but a few of the possable combinations of workers and managers that would compoase a construction force.
$ WARNING:Nanobots can become extremely dangerous.They can not only malfunction, but easily turn on the beings that make them.
In this respected caution, a person who works with nanobots, must be extremely knowledgeable of not only how the nanobots think, but what are the safe points around them and how to control this mission ethos?

Then that person would not be you philip73.

I see the conversation has become sick.

If we were to discover life on Mars then would a future human landing and subsequent colonisation be out of the question?
