rear brake shoes pivot pin

My rear drum brake shoes have a pivot pin (not the cam) with a thin (2 mm? thick) hex head.  Is the pivot pin a threaded bolt that can be removed by rotating with a wrench?  Don't want to force it until I am sure that's the proper way to remove it.

Is there a drum brakes thread on this form?  Thx

It's a threaded hex head bolt, it's probably never been removed since the bike was built .
It may prove to be difficult to remove, I would use a box end wrench or a socket not much of a bolt head to be wrenching on .
Curious as to why you are removing it .
