Just because they arrange things poorly such that they are confusing to
find doesn't seem a good reason for Newlib to leave them that way.  It's
not just the ones that were just put into stdio.  The are also many
wchar.h functions that are under the stdlib and string directories in
newlib, meaning that they are presently scattered into (at least) 3
places.  (FreeBSD appears to have the ones under stdio and string, but
the ones under stdlib.)  This is obviously not a priority, but I think
would be a good workability aid.
On a new subtopic, attached is a small cleanup patch for the new
wide-character I/O stuff, dealing with getting proper function
