Quote from Wikipedia:

The Photos service analyzes and organizes images into groups and can identify features such as beaches, skylines, or "snowstorms in Toronto". From the application's search window, users are shown potential searches for groups of photos in three major categories: People, Places, and Things. The service analyzes photos for similar faces and groups them together in the People category. It can also group faces as they age. The Places category uses geotagging data but can also determine locations in older pictures by analyzing for major landmarks (e.g., photos containing the Eiffel Tower). The Things category processes photos for their subject matter: birthdays, buildings, cats, concerts, food, graduations, posters, screenshots, etc. Users can manually remove categorization errors.

I uploaded about 1000 NSFW pics (80% from internet and 20% self made). I don't see any of those smart features described.

Is there some NSFW censorship?

There is no grouping/tags and here are some example searches

It's very likely that the Google Photos team block "NSFW" related keywords in order to prevent content policy violations.

9. Sexually Explicit Material

Do not distribute sexually explicit or pornographic material. Do not drive traffic to commercial pornography sites.

We do allow naturalistic and documentary depictions of nudity (such as an image of a breastfeeding infant), as well as depictions of nudity that serve a clear educational, scientific, or artistic purpose.

Note that your Google+ profile photo cannot include mature or offensive content. For example, do not use a photo that is a close-up of a person’s buttocks or cleavage.
