Well I prepared those based on 4.19 branch so I know it works there.

Now given 4.19 is the most recent LTS kernel is there a sense in adding these
configs in 4.19 or OE/Yocto-wise 4.19 is no different than any other version?

Given linux-yocto might be a base for many different projects I'd like to make
sure ARC boards are available there so there will be an easy way to build and
run basic stuff.
