AIUI, certain -devel packages land in the CodeReady repo. But these two in
particular are not actually in the CodeReady repo.

It appears it was not an oversight. See
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1713421. (Some comments are
private.)

And FWIW, you can always get the src RPMs and build them yourself to get
the -devel packages. Generally I'd agree that you should not have to do
this, but based on the private comments in that BZ I'd guess that that may
be your only option at this time.
