The common properties are now here:
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/Documentation/devicetree/bindings/power/supply/battery.txt

The property "max8998,charge-eoc-percent" seems unusual - what does
"percent" mean in such case? Usually EOC should happen at 100% of
charge so what is the point to set it as 45%?

Have in mind that current driver is platform data only so you do not
have to maintain any backwards compatibility. If the driver now has
weird meaning of "eoc" in pdata, then you can change it. Also you do
not have to map the bindings one-to-one to existing platform data. If
needed you can translate them from something meaningful in DT to
values expected by driver.

Best regards,
Krzysztof
