No, the three autorouters reflect three independent works, and three
different generations of autorouting - the MUCS router is gridded,
PCB's current autorouter is gridless but rectilinear, and the
toporouter is topological (triangular).

Whether each autorouter uses annealing or not is up to that
autorouter.  I'm not sure what PCB's current autorouter does.
