Hinges with non removable pin

It appears that I have an exterior door that has NRP hinges. I just discovered what these things are. Lucky me. I believe these are used in scenarios where an exterior door opens out. But not in my case. The previous owner installed these in the inside. I was planning to change the broken door sweep to reduce the draft coming in during the winter.

Does this mean I have to remove the hinges to get the door out?

Sure does.
I'd plan on using one longer screw in each hinge when you go to replace it.
