Like Andrey, I'm convinced they are not used on Jolla. If you check, 
you'll see that none of these QtOrganizer packages are installed by 
default on the actual Jolla device, nor depended on by jolla-calendar. 
Since I can find no QtOrganizer backend to interface with the actual 
calendar, I'm pretty sure that trying to use QtOrganizer will not work 
in any useful way, even if you can access it from QML.

For an example, you could always install jolla-calendar into your Jolla, 
ssh into it, and look under /usr/share/jolla-calendar to study their QML.

Or you could, if you like, study the source code of 
org.nemomobile.calendar at

If you don't know C++, here are a few tips for finding what you need:

In plugin.cpp, search for "qmlRegister", to find out which components 
are available to QML. "qmlRegisterType" registers a type you can create 
from QML, and "qmlRegisterSingletonType" registers a global object you 
can access, much like the "Theme" object.

Then you can look in the .h files for the declarations of these types. 
Look for Q_PROPERTY to find the properties, Q_INVOKABLE to find the 
methods you can call, and the "signal:" section for signals you can add 
handlers for (e.g. if there's a "eventChanged" signal in C++, then 
there's a "onEventChanged" signal in QML).
