They are canonical in the Tanakh, as Troy said. The issue isn't
canonicity but versification. You can have canonical non-verses (and for
that matter non-canonical verses) in OSIS using the canonical attribute.
Some translations make psalm titles verse 1, some translations include
them along with verse 1, and some translations make them a title prior
to verse 1.
