No. The choice of whether to use NSEC or NSEC3 is one for the
operator. NSEC3RSASHA1 does not imply NSEC3 is in use. It implies
that NSEC3 *may* be in use.
NSEC3 should not be used unless there is a good reason to use it.
Most zones don't need it and leaf reverse zones never need it as
there is too much structure in them for the hashing to prevent
enumeration and there are no delegtions so optout doesn't do anything.
