If they aren't "kwukyel" in Chinese language, what are they? They are 漢子 that are not in use in Mandarin Chinese.

For what it's worth, dictionaries using the Unihan database do not look too much into what's in it before making its contents available to the user. If a character is in the CJK range, it will show up and will be searchable.

And as for the dictionaries being wrong, they are not. 口訣 characters are Chinese characters, and whether they are used in Chinese or not is irrelevant. For instance 乫 is in ZDIC, acknowledged as a Korean-only character (and has a Mandarin pronunciation, jia1): zdic.net/z/15/js/4E6B.htm

You cannot prove a negative. 口訣 is a Korean-only thing, and is in the Unihan because it was (A) based on Chinese characters, and (B) used in conjunction with "regular" Chinese characters to write sounds specifics to Korean, like 乫 /kal/. They are 漢子, just not ones used in Mandarin. The same way 冇嘢唔 are 漢子, used in Cantonese and Hakka, and not in any other version of Chinese.

Unihan is for CJK. That's why your question is, I think, flawed: the title mentions "Chinese Characters", but the body of the questions says "Chinese". It is wrong to equate Chinese Characters and Chinese language. Per the UniHan page: "The Unihan database is the repository for the Unicode Consortium’s collective knowledge regarding the CJK Unified Ideographs contained in the Unicode Standard. It contains mapping data to allow conversion to and from other coded character sets and additional information to help implement support for the various languages which use the Han ideographic script."
