No.  Maestro is Finale's own music font, designed by Blake Hodgetts to 
replace the awful Petrucci. The default Sibelius font is called Opus.

Of course it's possible they might be able to use one another's fonts, 
but I think it's unlikely.  (Rosegarden-4 can actually use both of 
them, though I'm not sure why you'd bother as the Lilypond Feta font 
is probably better than either.)
