Eh, the intermediary deities to the heavenly bureaucracy like the Kitchen God are still full-on deities in their own right.

Others, like Guan Yu(Guandi) and Matzu, are much more directly gods, especially in California.

The distinction between a saint and a God may matter in Christianity but it doesn’t necessarily matter in other religions.
