You could look at the second link, but I am not at all sure they are new characters. One can easily see the three vowels and the shadda, and the i'jam dot which in Arabic is considered to be a part of the letter. I think that browsing the NLI will get you further manuscripts.

And of course there is

I've been trying to gather a list of the Arabic marks that actually happen in Hebrew for a while now, but don't have sources. I want to add them to ScriptExtensions data in Unicode. Do you know of a source that lists them?

There exist several Judeo-Arabic texts, Arabic written in Hebrew script with Arabic vowels and other marks. One well known is The Guide to the Perplexed.
