Indeed, strange. Those are the reset registers, which we don't use yet.
Can you please check from U-Boot that the thermal module is not held in reset?
On r8a7791/koelsch I get:
=> md.l 0xe61500c4 1
e61500c4: 00000000 ....
=> md.l 0xe6150954 1
e6150954: 00000000 ....
I.e. no reset or reset clear bit is set.
