The "$host" string here means exactly "$host". There is no
variable expansion for server_name (expect for a special name
"$hostname", which isn't actually a variable but a special name).

Most likely requests are handled in the sever{} block in question
as it's used as a default server.

The valid_referers directive doesn't support variables.

What you are trying to do, i.e. allow referers which match Host
header in a request, currently can't be done using the referers
module only.

With a litle help from the rewrite module it's possible though.
Something like this should work:

valid_referers none blocked server_names ~\.google\. ...;

set $temp "$host:$http_referer";

if ($temp ~* "^(.*):https?://\1") {
set $invalid_referer "0";
}

if ($invalid_referer) {
return 403;
}
