No, because they wouldn't have any standard name. As I understand it,
SPDX has created a set of abbreviations meant to cover the most
commonly-encountered license texts or license notices. Most of the
licenses that Fedora classifies as "MIT" would not have any SPDX name
(maybe even all but the OSI-style MIT license).
Hilariously, X.org's standard license text (as found near the top of
xserver/COPYING) would match neither SPDX's "MIT" nor its "X11"
