I know that the Gundams from most other Gundam series have primarily been prototypes. So were the Operation Meteor Gundams and the Celestial Being Gundams from Wing and 00, respectively, prototypes, as well?

No. The Gundams seen in the beginning of both shows were finalized versions, not counting various upgrades. In Gundam Wing, there aren't any Gundams being mass-produced like what you would see in most series. In Gundam 00, the 4 main Gundams you see at the start are actually 3rd generation. The 0 Gundam was the prototype in that series.

Compared to almost any show in the UC timeline or SEED where everyone wants to build their own Gundams or some cheap knockoffs after seeing how effective the first ones were in previous wars, the Gundams in Wing and 00 are definitely not defined as prototypes.

Then what are they, if they aren't prototypes? One-off models?
