You can check their glyph coverage in Fontmatrix or Fontaine and see for yourself.

Example: LiberationSans-Regular.ttf today - 655 character count. LiberationSans-Regular.ttf 1.03.90 from 2008 (oldest available package at https://fedorahosted.org/releases/l/i/liberation-fonts/) - 662.

Vera today: 256. Vera in 2003 (via http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/ttf-bitstream-vera...): 256.

Liberation does have a increase. It is open for contributions. Instead of Vera, look at Dejavu. Noone uses Vera anymore.
