Are they circulating commemoratives or circulation coins?
In other words, are these designs to be repeated in later years?

There's no information about the new series on Central Bank's website yet. My feeling is that it's a year specific set as it would look quite strange to have a logo on 45th National Day in 2016 or in later years...

100 Baiza is no longer a circulation denomination although Oman had a circulation coin of that denomination in 1983. However, it must be the first time that a commemorative coin set has been issued for all range of denominations, if they indeed are commorative coins.

A question :

The national day in Oman is the anniversary of the birthday of Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said.

That is correct, in 1990 they issued a commemorative series of coins to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the national day.
Have a look at this very nice topic by <k> for images of these coins.
