Most of the people do get live rocks like that only. There wont be any problem
You just have to cure the LRs for 20-25 days atleats.
Keep in mind while curing them, you must have enough stock of Activated Carbon to use in the tank as filter media to eliminate the stinky smell. While curing they smell like hell that even a dog will run away.
Ask the supplier to wrap each of them in wet cloth > wet paper > fish bags. (LR > wet cloth > wet paper > fish packets).
