Some are, some are not.  To see what the construction is like, scrape  
of the paint and see if the MOF spirals or is mostly straight.

A Matsushita (Panasonic) 100-ohm 3W-rated MOF resistor has c. 11nH of  
L. and will dissipate 12w for 1 hour in still air with no problems  
other than a decrease in R to c. 90-ohms.

Some examples:
SB-220 --  110MHz
TL-922 --  120MHz
2K-4, L4-B -- 95MHz
Al-80, SB-1000 -- 150MHz.
SB-230 -- 155MHz
all figures are +/– a few MHz.
