Yes, they were done, not deprecated. See 

I don't think the "Done" nomenclature stuck though. In half the cases it 
just meant unmaintained rather than actually done.

That page should probably be archived, as it's not much of an authority 

Some random incorrect statements:

QtSVG (Deprecated)
Reasoning: SVG Full (as opposed to SVG Tiny) functionality available in
Qt WebKit, which should be used instead;

Qt Designer (Done)
Reasoning: Qt Quick is recommended for developing UIs from now on, so
the new Qt Quick Designer should take over the capabilities of the 
classic Qt Designer.

https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qtmodules.html seems to more accurate nowadays
