Yes.  The default umask for lukemftpd(8) is 027.  Read the
ftpd.conf(5) manpage for detailed instructions on how to modify that
value, but you probably want to create a /etc/ftpd.conf file and
include within it:

    umask real 022

You should also read ftpusers(5) and make sure you've set up your
users with the right classes etc.  For backwards compatibility, just
listing the username in /etc/ftpusers disables that account from using
the FTP service.  Certainly you should disable FTP access for root and
all pseudo-users.
