JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):

No, not necessarily.They should be perfectly fine.So, especially if you’re doing this for your internal navigation, then that’s not something I’d really worry about.I have an e-commerce website and I show products in categories which include them in I guess sitemap.xml. It’s normal to not have any product in a category,so we show a nothing found message and Google marks them as soft 404s.
