Not really. The U+FB00-... code points aren't mandatory for the fi ligatures
(just like it's not mandatory to use the Arabic presentation forms for
contextual forms of Arabic letters). These code points are there for
compatibility reasons with legacy encodings.

Also, there are much more possible Latin ligatures that don't have reserved
code points, like fb, fh, fĺ etc.
