Answer

Yes, they have similar meanings here too.

a) This festival is celebrated every year.

“Celebrated” references the moment after the celebrations are complete; it’s a projection to future points in time

b) You will be accompanied by security.

This again references a future point in time. Security will accompany you, and following that, the accompaniment will be complete.

c) It has remained static whole year.

Here, the “it” has been remaining static throughout the year, and at the current time, we say the remaining is complete (though may continue). “Remain” is a relatively passive verb, but it applies here nonetheless.

d) As government formation is concerned it has shown that….

Government formation has gone through the process of concerning itself with something, and now the concerning is complete.

e) government is so focused on the country’s image

Government has gone through the process of focusing on something, and now the focusing is complete.
