Hmm, I find that disconcerting. I’d prefer a real Unicode character with special weights if that concept’s needed. And I guess that goes a long ways to explaining the interchange problem since clearly the code editor’s going to need these ☹

To further my understanding, can someone provide examples of how these are used in actual practice?

CLDR collation data defines special contraction mappings that start with a noncharacter, for http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr35/tr35-collation.html#CJK_Index_Markers

In CLDR 23 and before (when we were still using XML collation syntax), these were raw noncharacters in the .xml files.

As I said earlier:
it should be ok to include noncharacters in CLDR data files for processing by CLDR implementations, and it should be possible to edit and diff and version-control and web-view those files etc.
