I grew up with my father, step mother, step sister, step brother, brother and sister. My sister and brother would call my step mother, mom. My step bro and step sis would call my father, Dad. In light of the following Hadith is it permissible to call them dad or mom when they are not really their dad and mom?

Narrated Abu Dhar (Radi-Allahu 'anhu):

The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "If somebody claims to be
the son of any other than his real father knowingly, he disbelieves in
Allah, and if somebody claims to belong to some folk to whom he does not
belong, let such a person take his place in the (Hell) Fire."
Bukhari Vol. 4 : No. 711

Narrated Wathila bin Al-Asqa:
Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "Verily, one of the worst lies is to claim falsely to be the son of someone other than one's real father, or to claim to have had a dream one has not had, or to attribute to me what I have not said."
حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ عَيَّاشٍ، حَدَّثَنَا حَرِيزٌ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي عَبْدُ الْوَاحِدِ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ النَّصْرِيُّ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ وَاثِلَةَ بْنَ الأَسْقَعِ، يَقُولُ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ إِنَّ مِنْ أَعْظَمِ الْفِرَى أَنْ يَدَّعِيَ الرَّجُلُ إِلَى غَيْرِ أَبِيهِ، أَوْ يُرِيَ عَيْنَهُ مَا لَمْ تَرَ، أَوْ يَقُولُ عَلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم مَا لَمْ يَقُلْ ‏"‏‏.‏
