So in my current game, with a lot of energetic exploration and a little luck (or visa versa)I managed to find all three super luxuries first. I immediately colonized the worlds that I could (volcanic I had to mine) and at that point I stopped trading territory maps with the ai empires so that they wouldn't know where these planets are, although I enabled trading the luxuries with most of them so that the cash would start rolling in. The problem is that it hasn't yet. Now I am wondering if they don't know where the luxuries are located their freighters won't know where to go to get the goods. Is that how it works? Or do the freighters somehow know and just show up at the right place and I just need to wait longer (the systems are way out on the edge). I realize that my freighters can do the hauling, but I want MORE MONEY!

The latter explanation is the right one, plus other empires will grab the resources from your borders as well. If they find it on a border space port they will order it there and then your private sector will have to move the goods from the source to that space port. They don't have to get it at the source and distance is indeed a factor.
The absence of maps does not prevent exploration, they just facilitate it.
