No, they were never uploaded to AUR4. They are in the DB due to how the 
package migration works, but they were never uploaded to AUR4 and won't 
show up in the search until they are.

AUR4 provides a service. What users upload to it, it doesn't care about.  
And packages should build on 32-bit and 64-bit, whether as a lib32 
package or not.

>Assumed the maintainers decide to drop 64-bit support?

That sentence doesn't make any sense.
