Yes, they're in the rendering chapter (to describe how to display
them) and the obsolete elements chapter (to describe how to handle
them), but not in the Elements of HTML chapter.

HTML5 defines the handling and rendering of all elements and
attributes that have ever appeared in any previous version of HTML,
because it is meant to be a specification that allows browser vendors
to display the web as it exists, and you need to know how to display
frames if you want to display a number of web pages.  Many of these
elements and attributes are not actually part of HTML5, though, for
various reasons (many of which are now listed in the author
conformance requirements section).
