Regarding the PPC476FPE, it seems that this SoC is what IBM uses as their FSP2 (Flexible Service Processor) board, which is the management processor in their non-OpenPOWER POWER8/POWER9 systems. This explains plausibly why the PPC476FPE part isn't marketed by IBM.https://lists.ozlabs.org/pipermail/linuxppc-dev/2017-May/157856.html
Regarding the PPC476GTR SoC, I've yet to find out what this is actually used for.
