The ones on Google's own page do, e.g. which is an overview
of Chrome features, just shows the text parts with a large box where the
video should be. In Firefox I can see it's a Flash video, though I use
NoScript to block Flash by default. (I doubt that Chromium has somehow
imported my NoScript add-on :-)

I tried and, both of which use Ogg/Theora. I couldn't
get any video on either of them, just large blank rectangles where
presumably the video should be.
