Yes, I also encountered those questions.
I had about 3 for Herzberg and 3 for the Tuckman Ladder. There was also one question for McGregor ("X" and "Y" Theory).

Though PMBOK 5th edition does not have these theories, there definitely are questions on them (varies from exam to exam). I personally got one on Herzberg, one on Maslow and quite a few on Tuckman Ladder.
Look it uponline or in Rita's book, you will find the content needed to understand the theories. Make sure to understand these clearly, because the questions can be scenario based which will ask you to map the scenario to the relevant theory. So you need to know concept behind each theory.
For your quick reference, here are the ones which I noted in my notes:
