I recently ran into another variant of missing ORC data, some files are
simply not processed by objtool, eg. arch/x86/realmode/init.c. Would it
make sense to have the vmlinux pass (when it isn't used to generate orc
in the first place) also check that all code it finds has ORC data?

It's not fool proof, but it should help find files we're missing for
some raisin.
