No, none of these are keywords, keywords are modifiers, operators, primitive datatypes etc.
null, true and false are literal values just like 1 or 2.0 (an integer and double literal). Since they are literal values, the are also reserved words which means that you cannot use them as identifiers.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
