FWIW: My experience comes from some areas: my company that sells software
requiring an Export Control Classification Number because of the set of
message digests we use; being a platform maintainer for OpenSSL and git on
two heritage platforms.

Google is a wonderful thing:

The link is non-specific on which cyphers are prohibited, probably because
that changes without notice and I'm not sure Wikipedia is accessible from
all of those locations. Looking at the page history is actually informative
and perhaps relevant to the question.
