They theoretically are but it is very tricky to remove them and a high chance of them breaking. iFixit does not stock them sadly.

The key caps are in fact replaceable. The mechanism can be a bit delicate, but if you know where damage can occur it’s definitely avoidable. I can give further instructions if necessary, but didn’t want to clutter my response if you don’t end up needing to know.

There is also a known keyboard issue with this type of keyboard switch, so if you’re looking to replace them because they are stuck, not responsive , or a host of other issues I would look into this. As long as it has been less than 4 years from the date of original purchase you should be able to get free keycap replacement at the least. But more likely a replacement for the entire keyboard assembly.
