Weren't the "imperial knights" essentially a very low ranking form of "noble" I believe the lowest one on the HRE scale (sometimes only controlling part of a single village)? I believe the answer to your question is "no." Not sure, though.....

It states that (among other powers) they had the authority to conduct war without the need for permission. As non-hereditary knights were effectively elite soldiers, would appointing them (as their underlings) not fall under the imperial Knight's privileges?
