No, But!,
I did look at 2^n*n#-1 and have assembled my
fragments.
They have a good, neat looking form, but the form is
also flawed. For non-prime n, "proper" notation
would be 2^n*P(pi(n))#-1, ruining the repeating digits
effect in the presentation. When n is prime, the
notational collapse doesn't exist, so whatever these
primes should be called, n has to be prime for it to
be a perfect "whatever...".

There can be circumstances where taking the primorial
of n=composite can create several instances of the
same
number in an iterated run. With this form, the
multipler 2^n ensures each is distinct.
Thus, is it flawful, lawful, awful to say
2^16*16#-1 is prime?

Here's what I have found on these,
any one wants to take it farther,
be my guest.

After n=16, they are all PRP's.
I never got around to testing them.

2^2*2#-1 is prime!
2^3*3#-1 is prime!
2^7*7#-1 is prime!
2^8*8#-1 is prime!
2^14*14#-1 is prime!
2^16*16#-1 is prime!
