Err... no, it doesn't.
It just imports IANAifType from the IANAifType-MIB (plus various definitions
from assorted SNMPv2-* MIBs). It doesn't import anything from RFC1213

(If nothing else, RFC1213-MIB is written in SMIv1, and IF-MIB is in SMIv2)

No, it doesn't.
The definition of ifType is:
ifType OBJECT-TYPE
SYNTAX IANAifType
MAX-ACCESS read-only
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"The type of interface. Additional values for ifType are
assigned by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA),
through updating the syntax of the IANAifType textual
convention."
::= { ifEntry 3 }
