Some cards require players to have taken damage for a bonus effect to take place. Does loss of life count as being dealt damage?

Fathom Fleet Cutthroat enter image description here

These are the two cards in specific that I am talking about.

  • Even if the answer was yes, Fathom Fleet Cutthroat destroys a creature that was dealt damage, and Skymarch Bloodletter makes a player lose life.
