Yes to all but why such range of CPUs ???
Last two are same CPU, best of all is 3700x.

I don't really understand what the issue is, but I think you're a little confused.

Motherboards generally support a large range of CPUs. The Sockets generally remain the same between two or more generations, and within each of those generations multiple CPU models are created. It would be pointless and very very expensive to create hundreds of motherboards just for specific CPUs, especially since that makes it problematic if the user ever wants to upgrade. So usually the motherboard supports every CPU at the time of it's release for that socket, some even add support for CPUs released later through BIOS updates.

And the 3700X is not the "best" CPU in that list, the 3700X isn't even the highest end 3000 series, and that motherboard also supports all the 5000 series.

Any confusion is on your side.
I just asked OP about THOSE processors as there is large gap between 3100 and 3700x processors.
3700x is best of those processors OP asked about. not all the CPUs for AM4.
