I have a problem with the xdc provided in the user guide of the vc707 I'd like to connect the MOD_DETECT and TX_FAULT of the sfp but there is no pin allocated to it, is it normal ?

These signals are not mentioned in the XDC as these are not connected directly to the FPGA and these status signals can be monitored directly by the jumper points to which these are connected to.

But for example if I have to connect them to the pcs/pma core do I just have to make constants that will pass this check and then if there is an error or something not working check directly on the fpga ?

The 10G PCS PMA core does not take the TX fault and Mod detect signals as inputs to the core.
You need to tie these signals as indicated in PG068
