I put posititioning marks on all the raised vowels in the serif face.

It's not clear to me whether the inverted brev combining mark should be positinoed to the superscript, but I had it set up that way for serif normal, so now it does that for the other faces too.

Of course they are going to be used in phonetic transcription of labialized consonants. E.g.: kᵘ̯ońï wᵘ̯olï .
For a printed sample:
Fryderyk Lorentz. Gramatyka pomorska, t. I–II. Wrocław, 1958.

On the history of these characters' appearance in Unicode, see WG2 proceedings, listed here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phonetic_Extensions

Could you explain how the anchors would be used?  It could be argued that these letters are meant as symbols -- not to display text.

FreeSerif Regular is OK, FreeSerif Italic (and Bold and Bold Italic) don't have any mark attachment anchors.
