Don`t think so, the bootloader and the phones`s software will prevent the bootloader downgrade but not 100% sure. You may try flashing a older firmware with Odin and see what happens.
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

You should be able to. In the past we've usually been able to downgrade a version. The notable exception is that Samsung blocks downgrading to Jelly Bean i.e. pre-4.3 vis a vis a qfuse flag.

I don't have a 900F, so I haven't tried the downgrade you describe myself. But the lack of reports about any problems argues that recent updates are "normal" and haven't set another qfuse that would block a downgrade.
