Of course.

Consider a protocol made Experimental for whatever reason: but if I
want to implement it, don't I still need to know what references are
normative for it?  Of course I do.

Besides, an Experimental RFC might get upgraded as-is to Proposed Standard.

What about Informational?  Same answer, really.
