I'm sure there are, spanning from the 1974 pilots to early September '82.
To be fair, I'm sure not everybody knows that shows were wiped or erased in the first place, given today's technology allows for a lot of stuff to be readily available via YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, etc. Even then, those who are aware might not know that Merv continued wiping daytime Wheel into 1985, since it's kinda odd and a bit strange.
Post-Sajak daytime isn't likely at all because of the "Who?" factor (though I'd have grabbed the Goen shows to help plug That's the Question), plus these days Sony is pretty adverse to paying royalties to Merv's estate. There's probably a few Rolf-era episodes online somewhere (I know I've seen five of the six that circulate).
On the other hand, I'd say Woolery/early Sajak aren't out of the realm of possibility, since Sony has shown they're fine with clips of Alan Thicke's music. Unfortunately, most of the available episodes (outside the ones also held by Paley Center) don't seem to be in broadcast quality.
