I have never seen a single one, only the paperbacks. Startide Rising comes to mind. I think it's the most overhyped book in the history of SF ; but maybe it's missing not because of that but because they don't have the rights? Also, since the series is still ongoing, maybe they are saving some of the big names for later like Nintendo is doing with the Virtual Console releases, though that's quite unrelated. Quality doesn't seem to correlate inversely with release date this far I wonder why.
I agree about Startide Rising. It was a real struggle getting through that series.

There was a series of 10 hardcover Masterworks, which included Dune. But Dune has also been published in the paperback series - but in hardback with laminated boards because Gollancz don't have the paperback rights. Philip K. Dick is far more popular in the UK than he is in the US - hence the number of titles by him in the series.
As for classics that haven't made it into the series due to rights problems As you point out Gollancz had their large format paperback with plain yellow covers line which was called the Collector's Edition. There were some great novels in there which haven't made it to the SF Masterworks series. That other Classics series was 20 years ago. Here's the first 20 of them
