Yes; as documented, both of those are refs that point to a commit.

gitrevisions(7) says that master:quuxery is a ref pointing to a blob or
tree, so it is not a committish.  However, if quuxery is a submodule, I
would expect master:quuxery to point to a commit object and thus be a
committish.  So perhaps the <rev>:<path> description in gitrevisions(7)
should be updated to accommodate submodules.

master^{tree} is guaranteed to be a tree (if such a tree exists), so it
is not a committish.
