Yes, and at least one manufacturer, Front Range Products, made that same

What we call a seven foot door is actually the prototype door opening width.

Previous to that, it was common for modelmakers to make the door itself the
nominal six, seven, eight foot wide. And we customers did not know the
difference. Few if any of us checked drawings.
