As Michael and Clark indicated, these barred letters do not
have decompositions into base letters plus diacritics.
(Another way of saying that formally is that the letter
is already fully decomposed.)
Perhaps it would help if you indicated why you are looking for
versions of these letters using combining diacritical marks.
If the issue is weighting the letters for sorting, so that
they sort as a type of d or a type of l, then that can be
accomplished by the appropriate tailoring of a collation
weighting table, and does not require an actual decomposition
of the character itself.
