They're blends, not contractions.

Actually, they are called closed form compound words.
#22 to #9 - honestchap (01/04/2013) [-]
Compound words are two words that would originally have been separate (although most likely used as a noun phrase) that have been brought together to render them as a single word. They do, however, retain both their full forms.

The examples given do not retain both words' full forms, instead combining them into a single word that is a combination of some the sounds of one or both of the words (one word is sometimes left in its entirety). Ergo, these are blends.

Even though stud is used to help structure a wall and cannot have any other definition because homonyms don't exist.

Contraction is a combination of two words by subtracting letters and adding an apostrophe. Those words are portmanteaus.
