No. Both those firmware files work just fine on my openSUSE system.

The md5sums for the firmware are as follows:
1850c1308fbcd95e9f6a7f58ede1e35f  /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8723befw_36.bin
a2c544e90d41fa9097b18ba86f11bec9  /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8723befw_36.bin.xz
bc828ddc6cd700abb79a8df5794bcf04  /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8723befw.bin
7c310f301623cf16211ef5b4a3a3078d  /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8723befw.bin.xz

The sizes for the uncompressed modules are:
31762 /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8723befw_36.bin
30746 /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8723befw.bin
