User accounts do not expire in Drupal nor is such functionality built-in. Accounts will persist until a person or a module disables them.

Also, users will show as "blocked" in your user listing if their account has not yet been confirmed. Either because they need to confirm their email address or an admin has to manually approve their account, depending on how you have user account creation configured.
