No, they depend on resistor combinations used and are theorical values.

Quoting Artur Gawryszczak:
"I guess, that the formula "temp2 (@*30/43)+25, (@-25)*43/30" is correct

for those Asus motherboards, which get CPU temperature from internal 
thermal diode (Pentium Coppermine, and above), and "temp2 @*2.0, @/2.0" 
is correct for Athlon/Duron boards, which use a thermistor in the
