Yes, the KC-135E was a modification, but not of the R model. I believe
these were KC-135As. Their engines were replaced with JT3Ds taken from
retired civil 707s; that's the reason so many 707s vanished into
Davis-Monthan in the early 1980s.

And you're right, whatever their initial Boeing number designation, it
would not have changed.
