Yes, that would make sense, as that mass storage image includes an EFI boot partition that is 960 blocks long, and the FFS partition is 736256 blocks long.

The floppy63.fs image is a 2880 sector (1.44MB) FAT filesystem containing only two files: OpenBSD's diskette bootloader and the OpenBSD RAMDISK kernel.

Is diskette media truly necessary?

OpenBSD/amd64 can be installed from USB-attached mass storage (such as memory sticks), from optical media (CD/DVD), or from Ethernet networks (PXE).
