Yes, but they are defined as dead keys. I have a copy of the
DIN 2137-2:2003-09 where at page 8 says this (for Group 1):
===
Taste in Position E12
(1 Ebene) Akut (b)
(2 Ebene) Gravis (b)

(b) Schriftzeichen mit Unterdrückung des Zeichenschrittes (Tottaste),
siehe 3.9
===

For sure it can be used as distinct character (in conjunction with
space), but I find this a bit uncomfortable for usual writing.
