Just jumping in to confirm that the availability of music on Spotify is determined by the artists and their music label or distributors.
For instance, some music is only available in certain countries, while access is blocked to others. Sometimes it might also happen that the album(s) or song(s) will be unavailable temporarily, and come back again later.
We add new content to Spotify every day, so if you can’t find something you’re looking for right now, it may appear (or reappear) soon.
Hope you'll find this info useful. Let us know if we can help with this or anything else!

Is this a mechanism the publisher or artist is able to control from outside of the Spotify company in a self-sufficient way?
Or in other words:
For this specific case: Who can provide an accurate information on this being a permanent state or not?
The missing songs just disappear from my playlist without any notification ones triggered, so the benefit of using spotify to manage my music library becomes kind of questionable with such circumstances.
I put hours of work into painstakingly compiled playlists, so it's kind of a letdown.
