"Are ranged/melee attack rolls and grapple checks considered ability checks?

For example, an item that gives a +2 bonus on all Strength and Dexterity related ability checks and skill checks - does that include attack rolls and grapple checks? They are Strength and Dexterity related checks. Instead of skill ranks, you add your base attack bonus.

Obviously this bonus applies to things like Strength checks to burst through a door, things like Climb, Jump, Disable Device and Use Rope. "

This was posted on my group's message board, and I don't know the answer... anyone? Please be specific, while I have my own opinion, I want to know what the rules say....
