The controversy is new; untill UL questioned its' classifications, they were.
Under the new criteria, only EMT fittings to 1" have so far been listed.
I'm not even sure if the controversy extended to anything but EMT fittings. Logic might say 'yes,' but the UL statements were pretty specific in singling out EMT fittings.
As to your question: Generally, yes. The exception is when used on the top surface of a box, panel, etc. In that situation, it is necessary to use a Myers' hub. If, as is the case with most service equipment, you are connecting to a raised hub, they're fine. (The concern is that pooled water will seep in at the point where the fitting meets the sheet metal. A Myers' hub has a gasketed face.)
