Mine weren't, they were so misaligned my E strings were barely heard.
I replaced them anyhow, too harsh for my 5150.

Most floyd equipped Ibanez guitars have F-spaced pickups. *Will it matter if you don't have F-spaced pickups? Not really. *

Just for reference, all of Dimarzios 7 string pickups are NOT F-space.

The PAF-pros on my PMC and BFP are not F-spaced, but they sound as balanced as any other newer Jems ( Jem10, Jem90, BSB and DBK)

FWIW, on my JMP100P3, the Steve's Special in the bridge is F-spaced, the Air Norton is not.

The HFH in the neck of my RG is F-spaced, and it lines up perfectly. You can have any DiMarzio PUP f-spaced. There's alot of info on their site.
