In http://www.dcc.unicamp.br/~stolfi/voynich/Notes/034/Note-034.html you
will find a summary of those sequences, plus those on pages 1r, 69r, and 75v.

Indeed...  except that I see <p>s in 49v, 57v (ring 3 from center) and 66r.

Yes, with <?ar> and <dar>.  Also, <air> similarly occurs as a character in 66r.

    > Similarly "sh" appears in f66r standing on its own...
The symbol <sh> also occurs by itself in 57v (ring 2). Since <sh>
hardly ever occurs by itself in normal text, we can assume that it is
being used here as a "letter".

Note also the two types of <f> in 66r...

All the best,
