Just interested in how AV R&D companies unpack worms with complex UPX and PE

The modified UPX packing is a pretty small change usually. Compare one with a standard UPX header for the same version. There are a variety of unpackers out there.

Having taken a look at the samples, they are indeed agobots (look a bit more like phatbots, but who can tell anymore?), but polymorphic ones (polybots).

Also, they are packed using PE-Crypt.Wonk, which would explain why upx -d didn't work.
