Is there a data area where a program can find the JES symbolic variables defined with SET?

There is not yet a program.
It may be written in assembler.

Wasn't there something like a JECT, job entry control table?

All the SET symbols are resolved and dealt with before a JOB is selected.

What do you want to do with the information?

If written in COBOL, you could use the JCL SET statement to set the value of a symbolic variable on your EXEC PGM=XXX,PARM=&YYY statement, then get the value of YYY in the Linkage Section of your program.
