Sad to see that this still has not been fixed.
These are built into the CMS, so there isn't really a way to move or remove those, @EricW. Some are also necessary for the function of the site. That said, I'm hoping that we'll see some changes to this in the future.
Weebly should take this issue more seriously. If not you are going to see many customers leave Weebly for not taking the time and effort to resolve this. This issue has been brought up to Weebly since 2016!!! People will eventually have enough of the "we hope to have a fix" responses with Zero actions and leave your company.
@Thaniom I can help reducing the unused JS / CSS, and optimize website speed in other parameters.
I still can't get rid of the unused code completely, because as mentioned here some files are critical to the website's finctions, but I can optimize the loading speed to a level that allows a very fast website.
The speed optimization process improves various factors, including Web Vitals (the new metrics from Google related to Page Experience: mainly LCP & CLS), font loading, image optimization, preloading, lazy loading etc.
Attached screenshots of my current Weebly website speed (desktop / mobile):

Of all the bugs and flaws with Weebly, the weight of these editmysite .js files is the one that irks me the most. I hope it's resolved soon. It's getting to the point where I'll be moving all my Weebly sites to another platform.
I echo the need for this to be a priority with Weebly.
Starting my research for other options.
Hey, bud check my site on desktop and phone and see how mine does. I am at 2.7s on desk and 7.0 on a cell phone. See what you think. Also on the phone, you can see an extra" marine surveyor" at the top of the page that should not be there and don't know how to remove it? Thanks. Cary.
