Can someone tell me if the half-walls with the twisted barley wood posts in the attached picture are load-bearing?

Look to flimsy to be supporting. Look under them to see if there's any piers or a block support wall in the crawl space or basement.
Look directly above to see if there's a wall lined up directly over them.

It's a tri level home with nothing but the attic above in that particular area.

Then your left with checking out the rooms below down to the basement.
What's the plan? Thinking about removing them?
Keep in mind if you do your going to be doing ceiling and floor repairs.
