"don't care" is used as a compound adjective and the verb in
compound adjective is ignored in that case. Please see

possible to improve readability slightly with the following variant:
Bit 8-31 of this register are apparently don't-care bits, and...
Not sure if this is really better, and we probably should ask a native

I would be tempted to put:
are "don't care"
with the quotes, if it is quoting the datasheet?
