Well if they are... well if Stardew Valley is like them, then I'd say no, it's not an RPG, despite dungeon basically being an action RPG.
Game that has mini-side game that is an RPG, isn't an RPG game itself imo.

If it's a campaign, or complete side mode (like maybe dungeon mode in Ehrgeiz) then sure "it's also an RPG", but as completely optional dungeon...
"The game design for real life is so flawed!"
