Google definitely uses the directory DMOZ to help it index new sites that may not already be listed in its results.

DMOZ uses a hierarchical ontology scheme for organizing site listings. Listings on a similar topic are grouped into categories which can then include smaller categories.

toinoitieng:
Dmoz is the Internet’s largest directory system (over 4 million
web sites) and is maintained by human editors. A web site listing
in Dmoz can also be an important part of having a web site rank
well in Google, because Google uses Dmoz results in it’s own directory.

Advantages of Dmoz :
Better relevancy than non-human edited directories and search
engines.
Do not rank, promote or optimize sites, simply a data provider.
Disadvantages
Abuse by editors (not often)
Can take a long time to have your site reviewed
