No, they are not likely to have any copyright over the rephrased sentences.
The sentences are machine generated and therefore not an intellectual work

Nevertheless, the tool produced by this company definitely is their
intellectual property and we cannot 'copy' the tool.

Just wondering, if I am using Microsoft word to compose and MS Word

copyright for the re-engineered sentence accepted by me as per its
suggestion? Surely not.

The entire thing is as per my understanding. If anybody finds a lacuna,
please feel free to point it out.
