Probably. I actually put a fair bit of pressure on that strip, and it wouldn't even budge. If I'm really lucky, maybe some sort of thermal epoxy/glue is holding it there, and helping the heat reach the fins? But I have to agree with your review - when you look closer, it looks like the chip heat has a bit of a journey to actually reach the fins. So taking the fins off probably isn't going to hurt much, especially if the modules never see north of 1.65V.
