From my colleague at www.satobs.com,

rom: Scott Tilley via Seesat-l

It was noted yesterday a considerable number of objects that perform
communications roles in GEO orbit and some objects in LEO where
declassified by USSTRATCOM. Historical data going back to 2015 is now
present in their database for these objects.

Space Track confirmed this was intentional by responding to a twitter
post I made with this statement:

"You're correct. We are releasing additional data about some space
objects not previously available. USSTRATCOM has a new policy to enhance
SSA data sharing, transparency and spaceflight safety."

You can follow the discussion here:

Not since early 1983 has there been this level of transparency in the
use of space. They still have some work to do but this is a good first
step!

Regards,

Scott Tilley

Well if they are telling us about them they are probably already obsolete.
