Good day.
Is it known about some other aircrafts wearing swirl camo, besides
Oeffag Albatroses?

Yes!  There is at least one photo that I'm aware of showing a Phönix-built Hansa Brandenburg D.I Star Strutter with swirl camo, possibly 28.69, flown by Godwin Brumowski.  It's on page 15 of "Air Aces of the Austro-Hungarian Empire 1914-1918" by Dr. Martin O'Connor.  I'd scan it for you if I had a scanner.  Maybe someone can help us out here.
Cheers,
Bud

Yes.  That's the one.  The only one I've seen, in fact.

 Also printed camo was known as "sworl".
