I'd say that the forms you bring here are the SHORT ones.
The usual form, yes, has a yud after the second root consonant.
And so we have in Jdg 20:42 the same word you provide (of Jer 22:7) but with
yud inserted ---------> this last is, so to say, the right form.

By "other examples" (in your question) what do you mean: other examples of
short forms and their corresponding long ones? What are you thinking of?
