I would consider this defective in the original hyphenation. In regular
text these words could be split both before and after the third vowel
(if it is not at the end of the word), so it seems the original
algorithm misses a valid hyphenation.
But given this one could add the rule to our post-processing that
syllables ending with three vowels can be split before the last one. (I
assume the first two vowels are always diphtongs here).
