I am not aware of any binding Church document which permits the Eastern Catholics to do this. Florence dealt specifically with the Eastern Churches. If some do reject them and they are not punished then it is done through negligence. I know Eastern Catholics who are very orthodox and others who seem to be Catholic in name only and do reject alot of what they perceive to "Romish."

"Feeneyites" however have been regularized by local ordinaries and even abook defending "Feeneyism" was declared to be free from all moral and doctrinal error. Our current Holy Father even visited a pro-Feeney abbey in Still River and met with the superior of one of the branches of the Order in Rome. 

There is no magisterial document permitting Eastern Christians in communion in Rome to deny the ecumenical nature of those Councils any more than there is a magisterial document permitting Feenyism. (Nota bene, there are many members of the Eastern sui iuris Churches who are completely orthodox, just as there are many orthodox lovers of the extraordinary form.)

Sadly, the fact that a book has an imprimatur is no longer always a guarantee that it is truly free from doctrinal error. The Breaking Bread Hymnal, which has heretical hymns in it, has an imprimatur.

You might be interested to know that the Patriarch of the Melkite Church himself considers all the Ecumenical Councils after the first seven not to be binding upon Eastern Catholics. He has publicly stated this numerous times. The fact that a group has been regularized does not always indicate that group's orthodoxy.
