Absolutely not. They are designed for a deck that is very close to the ground. They provide no side to side support and you will never get a permit to use them.
For a deck that high, I would be using 6x6 posts attached to concrete sono tubes set at least 4' in the ground. If this deck has already been built, I would not be using it until the posts have been replaced.

This will not pass inspection, you have to use either big foot or sono tubes & they have to be set to a minimum of four feet in the ground, the post should be 6x6 & bolted with the proper bracketts.

Not at all! For this you should be using big foot concrete footings or a 12" soma tune 4' deep and minimum if 6x6 post and 2x10 beam I would even recommend an 8x8 post, always remember the stronger the better.
