Default are sprouts paleo?

Since alfalfa and beans are legumes, does that mean that alfalfa sprouts and bean sprouts are not paleo?

And what about broccoli sprouts?

Short answer: No.

Long answer: While I'm sure that hunter-gatherers would have eaten fresh young peas straight from the pod storing legumes to sprout at a later date would have been more trouble than it was worth so it's unlikely that anyone ate sprouted legumes before the introduction of agriculture made storing grains and legumes a routine practice.
