Does anybody know whether SS John XXIII and John Paul II have been placed, by the competent authorities of the sui iuris Oriental Churches, onto the Calendars of those Churches?

For the major Byzantine Rite churches, no. In fact, I imagine it would take quite a bit of pressure to displace or even distract from St. Philip the Apostle on October 11th (given the relationship to the fast and all). I see no mention of either men on any other dates in any of the calendars.
There is no mention of either pope in the Maronite Synaxarion:
It was reportedly fairly widely that the Melkites formally approved both for the Ordo at their synod in 2015, along with a number of Latin and Maronite saints; e.g., see the summary of the meeting here:
The Aussie Melkite calendar linked to above has for the Second Sunday of Great Lent "The Holy Relics" and then "St Gregory of [sic] Palamas." I wonder if there any Greek Catholic jurisdictions who have brought back the Sunday of St Gregory Palamas tout court?
