No.
When you purchase a single-track or an annual subscription, it is non-transferable and only you can use it for your project.

However, your license does cover clients who hire you to work on their project. The license is not transferred in this case. The client is only free to use the track you licensed for their project.

What formats are tracks delivered in?

Preview tracks are watermarked and are in mp3 format.

Purchased tracks are in WAV / AIFF format (16 bit/44.1 kHz or higher).

What is Content ID?

Content ID is basically a digital fingerprint system that involves newly uploaded content being checked against registered (copyrighted) content stored in a database.

This mostly applies to tracks you use in your work and upload to YouTube.

If a match is found then the copyright owner and the uploader will be notified and the owner will then decide what action they would like to take.

When a match is found you will see a notification next to your video that says “matched third party content” and you may need to take action to clear any copyright claim.
