Yes, they were added at Unicode 4.1 (as was the base dotless j) which
came out in March 2005, so after mathml2. They are on the list to get
added (along with a few more characters in unicode 4.x and 5.x which
have been added specifically to help map the MathML and ISO entity sets.
The MathML and ISO entity jnodot is defined to be a "j" (with a dot) for
the same reason, This can also be changed in MathML3.

Unfortunately I didn't get time to get the tables updated for the
current draft of mathML3 chapter 6, so as you'll see the tables are
currently removed from the draft (replaced by temporary links to the
MathML2 REC tables) but hopefully the tables will be updated in time for
the next draft of MathML3.
