Yes, it books straight into F and it credits to your frequent flyer program as paid first class. I use these for all my F travels on AA (well the vast majority of them) since they're not much more than economy.

Apparently the only time you may have to be downgraded is in the case of irregular operations where you'll need to be re-accommodated on other flights and there's no space in first class. I've used these fares dozens and dozens of times in the last 6yrs or so and have never been downgraded.
