Okay, so now you have example.cno, what else ?  IMHO the three
example.cno form a complete list.  There are no other common
examples, and as you say local.* / test.* / example.* don't
qualify as placeholders:

local.museum, test.aero, or example.coop are not better than
similar SLDs in any ccTLD.  AFAIK some TLDs had a policy to
reserve "all" TLDs as SLDs, but that was before the creation
of new TLDs (aero / biz / coop / info / museum / name / pro).
