As per the standard contracts of some Singaporean employers, yes, although 7 days is on the low side even for Sg.

Is this so? I checked the MOM website and it 7 days the minimum required days for people who have worked 3 months (and 7 days is the annual leave they are entitled to) for people on the "Work Permit" classification. However, lawyers and other managers/professionals earning more than SGD7k are NOT the "work permit" law, they're under P1 or PEP?

Correct.

What governs the vacation days P1 and PEP are entitled to?

Your contract. There is no legal minimum or maximum.
