Yes, assuming that they are not otherwise restricted.  See:

You cannot have a <Directory> section inside an .htaccess file.
(.htaccess files determine what directory they apply to by their own
location.)  In addition, the <Directory> section should contain an
absolute path (starting with a slash) relative to the root of the
file-system, not the webspace or DocumentRoot.

It looks to me that you are working off some lousy documentation
someplace.  Why not instead simply tell us what you want to do.
