I believe, canonically, they are. Along with the Hindu deities and the Dreamtime spirits of Australia, the loa are the only spirits that Heaven tolerates, for certain values of "tolerate". In this case, it means that they probably won't harrass them in the Far Marches, won't kill them if they find them in the Vale of Dreams, and might not kill them if they find them on Earth, if the spirit can provide a good (i.e, Heavenly) reason for being there, and promises to go back as soon as it's done whatever it needs to do.
