No, they have not been "throttled" - they simply have CPU (and other constraints) that mean they are not able to run the latest OS at the same speed as a modern machine.

The performance reduction feature that was added to the iPhone to stop it crashing under heavy workloads* when the battery needed replacing was not added to the iPad.

* Due to the battery voltage dropping too low.
