I created a profile field using the "Email" field type. Under the "Manage Display" options, the Format list contains an "Email SpamSpan" option.
If that option is selected, the email address is not displayed on the user's profile. If the user has filled out the field, the profile displays the field label (in this case, "Email address"), but the field value is not shown.
