Does F1554 have a torque requirement?

No. There is no specified torque requirement for ASTM F1554.  In fact, there are no torque requirements for anchor bolts in general.  Per AISC Steel Construction Manual 13th Edition, the normal effort of an ironworker with a regular spud wretch is adequate to install nuts on anchor bolts.  If an anchor bolt is to be torqued to a specific torque requirement, this requirement must be specified by the engineer and the contractor must be given specific instructions.
