My EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI folder before and after Clover 5k update, shows missing files but it did not have any adverse effects as the 10.4.6 update went uneventful and system stability is as good as it's always been.
my question is, should I put the missing files back into the new drivers64UEFI folder?

You should have a look at this:
Clover Rev 5000 and later has a new folder structure for its efi drivers ...
This info is detailed in the official Clover changes thread :-
- /EFI/Clover/drivers/BIOS (replaces EFI/Clover/drivers64)
- /EFI/Clover/drivers/UEFI (replaces EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI)
Rev 4683/4688/4689 avoid conflicts between AppleUiSupport driver and old FV2 drivers when installing. no more manually delete old FV2 driver in folder if you have AppleUiSupport driver when installing Clover. Clover will keep your AppleUiSupport driver without old FV2 Drivers. Rev 4692 avoid conf...www.insanelymac.com
As detailed in that post, the Clover installer will not automatically migrate/update an existing Clover install. If you run the installer with you current boot EFI partition as the target it will delete your old folder structure, create the new structure and install a default set of efi drivers (or the ones that you select to install). It will not move your existing efi drivers to the new folders.
Rather than Installing Clover over an existing Clover install which as many users have found can cause boot issues, I found it easer to format a USB Memory stick with GUID Partition scheme / HFS+ and then run the latest (r5000 +) Clover installer and install a fresh new/clean install of Clover on to it making sure I selected all of the EFI drivers i needed. I then copied my working config.plist, DSDT and SSDT's files, kexts, themes .. etc on to it and tested that it worked by booting from it. Once I was happy that everything was working correctly I updated my systems EFI Boot partition by deleting the old Clover folder and copying the new one from the USB, you will also need to also copy the new BOOTX64.efi file in the BOOT folder.
