I would think their value would be the same as any other late .44 Auto Carbine in like condition.

I'm not aware of those having any special value over other years, since it's not a separate model, and AFAIK Ruger put that 25th Anniversary medallion in the stock of all of the .44 Carbines sold, that last year of issue - 1985.

Ruger did call it the YR25, so it was a special model. I'd heard just previous to its introduction that Ruger was going to drop the .44 Carbine (was getting too expensive to mfg that machined receiver) but they had quite a stock of guns still sitting in inventory. The answer was to make it a commemorative and it worked! Ruger sold them pretty quickly actually.
But...there were also a few guns sold very late with high sn's that did not have the 25th Anniversary medallion in the stock.
