In general senses, those elements will be an exception to the octet rules. Of course it does not mean that they HAVE to always, but in most of the cases, it is much more stabilized if they defy the octet rule due to formal charges being close to 0. If you recall like HClO4, you know that formal charge will be less if three of the oxygens have the double bonds in comparison to single bonds.
