I don't know if they're officially pressed in, but I know they are notoriously tight and typically take pretty extraordinary effort to remove. I had one once... the one where I chipped my floor IIRC... that I ended up simply cutting off right above the base to get a clean OD and not much length to drive through, then used a sawzall to cut a slot the length of the remaining inside piece to relieve the tension. It finally did come out, but resulted in a column that was 6" shorter. Hey, it worked.
