"Though from my knowledge, none of the planes you mentioned above have them."
Both the 767 and 777 have inboard ailerons that droop with trailing edge flap extension.
The reason Boeing gives for drooping the 767 ailerons is to lower the nose attitude on approach for visibility and commonality with the 757's attitude.

I think the following picture may be a better example that shows a "drooping" aileron. One can't conclusively make that assumption from this picture; however, since it only shows one aileron and the plane might be in the process of rolling out of a turn....
An interesting sidenote..... As a kid I remember doing a few space-A flights on a C-5A. It seems they had some wing fatigue issues, and as a result reflexed the ailerons UP six degrees in cruise to reduce the moments on the wing and the associated wing flex. I think most of the C-5As were later re-winged, but I'm not certain...
