Personally, I think they do because they are still subjective claims about reality. I hesitate to cordon off the definition of "opinion" so drastically that the sphere of "facts" has nothing to do with "opinions" whatsoever. We have to be careful about false dualisms. Subjectivity isn't free floating, it is anchored via interpretation in a relationship with the objective reality.
Even if you limit "opinion" to a subjective interpretation that can never be "right" or "wrong," it simply means you have a ton of people on SHH claiming that certain things are "opinions" when they really aren't.
