No, they are not water proof, but if there are "WR" letters on them than they are WATER RESISTANT...

There are several different variants of the 18-55, one of them is WR. There are two variants of the 55-300 (DA 55-300 and DA L 55-300) neither of which are WR.

Actually, "WR" means "WEATHER RESISTANT".
