No, functions in intrinsic modules are not intrinsic.  They do not satisfy 
the requirements for intrinsicness.  They are not specified by the standard 
to be intrinsic.  Neither is my cup of coffee.

No, though that is sufficient.

There is a note in "Standard intrinsic modules", which says
  "The types and procedures defined in standard intrinsic modules are not 
themselves intrinsic."
