Yes, quite a few.

You will find them in lisp/international/mule-conf.el.  Look for any
define-charset form which has a :unify-map property.  The :code-offset
property gives the beginning of the codepoint block for each of these
charsets, which tells you where in the 0x110000-0x3fff7f range they
are mapped.

This is an obscure issue, which is of interest to a select few (maybe
just one) of the Emacs hackers, that's why it is never described more
than you found in the documentation.
