YES, they are used, I have the best reference ever, the book
"Die Floppy 1541", Author: Karsten Schramm, 64'er Publishing, 
ISBN 3-89090-098-4, in german. Hereby losely translated:

$022b-$023d : "channel table, contains the status for each channel:
$ff : not used
$81 : channel opened for writing
$41 : channel opened for read+write
$01 : channel opened for reading

$023e-0243 : current data byte for each channel

Perhaps the best idea is to use $0000 - $0005 for zeropage vectors
(which can be weird, dont interfere with the jobcodes!), 

$001b  is officialy not used! 
$0035, $0037, $003b/$003c not used!
$0046 not used
$00b5-$00c0 : "lo and highbyte of record number for each buffer"
so if you don't work with can maybe use it...

You could maybe have used the input buffer $0200-$0229...

Other than that, you're well adviced to use $0300-$07ff for your own stuff...

Hope that helps. I can scan in the pages 165-173 from said book if needed, 
but it's in german!
