It might be useful to say when they are generated. Are they generated
once per period? At the beginning or the end of the period? That kind
of thing.

Why do you think you need to say that they are unused? If the hardware
generates these interrupts, then they are "used". If no driver currently
has a use for them, that's driver specific and doesn't belong in the DT
bindings.
