No they're not. They are "régions" just like every other in metropolitan France. It's not comparable to, for instance, New Caledonia which has a different status (IIRC Anaeve Pain isn't listed as French).

I don't understand why they gave them a different flag, it's like giving a specific flag to players from Alsace, Brittany and so on, it doesn't make sense
