They are not handled, which is slightly different.

The proper fix would be to patch "org-irc.el" and add an export function
there. "irc" links are not default links in Org, so there is no reason
to hard-code them in "ox-html.el".

You can look into `org-info-export' in "org-info.el", which is an
example on how optional link types are handled.

Thank you!
