    A few are , many are not - at least in the USA .
    It will down to production costs of course. I am sure the number of ads in HD is slowly increasing.
    I get to USA fairly regularly (work for a US IC company).

    I can't speak for Japan / Oz .

    I think there is also the issue that many local stations - who insert the ads into their network feeds - only have SD gear for playout (and can only insert a basic bug into their otherwise untouched HD feeds?)

    I would imagine it would be easier for HD ads to be inserted into the nationwide (though split time zone?) channels like Discovery, HBO etc.?
