It depends on the kind of packages. If it's some theme or visual effects 
that can be used on Arch, it's probably fine. If it's a 
distribution-specific tool that only work on Manjaro/Garuda/etc. or have 
no relation to Arch, they have no place on AUR.

Going over the linked packages, they all fall in the latter category.
