Sometimes when selecting the yellow FK joints you select the bones instead. Turn off the skeleton display or turn on skeleton lock selection.

yes you can manupulate them the yellow stands for FK bones.. turn the display off on skeleton, and also on ik to make it easier to see the fk bones.... now you have to DOUBLE CLICK on one of the finger joint yellow balls then you can rotate.

if you are just talking about rotate the finger effectors, you have to be in body part mode. the full body mode it only for the general body manipulation.
