NOTES

The Coremasters are our own creation, along the lines of the CircuitMasters.
Unlike all the official Masters (Headmasters, Targetmasters, ActionMasters and so on), the CircuitMasters are apparently above factions, and so should be the Coremasters.
But what's with that Autobot Destiny line then? It's about the unsolved mystery of the original story, G1 UK #9-12 - Man of Iron, where the Navigator is also called Warrior and "Guardian of the Autobot Destiny".

Life Spark, an early, unused G1 concept for what later became the Cybertronian Spark, is first referenced in comics by Cyclonus in G1 UK #78-88 - Target: 2006.
Our version is renamed Core Programming, consistently with the CoreMaster concept.

In panel 2, the Navigator & Assistant duo from Man of Iron is born.
But what's with those Coremasters looking all alike? And who are those "Decepticon counterparts" they must catch up with?
Are these clues enough for you to figure out their secret?

The Navigator's ship in panel 3 looks almost like the Autobot ship seen in Transformers '84 #0 (which is a remake of Man of Iron).
But what about the Decepticon cruiser? Does it remind you of something?
This is the last clue to figure out that thing we are not telling.

Great looking page. The Decepticon cruiser appears to be supporting Cybertronian Empire colours.

So what's a Core Master's Gimmick?

(Since you compared them to other masters)

Actually there isn't one, unless you want to count the Orb, because the CoreMasters are akin to the CircuitMasters (which don't have a gimmick!). :)
