But I would argue that these are not Tibetan characters; they are
Mongolian characters used to transliterate Tibetan characters.

The Unicode Standard contains mistakes, and the code chart for
Mongolian clearly does.  I hope to report tonight a set of unarguable
mistakes such as the omission of the glyph for "1820 180C  third form
(medial)"; the glyph is missing for many such variants.

I would say it is probably best to accept what the code chart has done
for U+1883 and U+1884, unless you know of fonts or natural writing that
behave differently.
