DSF-GDB does not show global variables automatically. 
See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=219040 [variables][cdi] Variables view should show globals (or should it?)
 
CDI-GDB does show them, so you may want to look into how it does it.
 
P.S. -symbol-list-variables does not seem to be a valid GDB command, maybe you meant -stack-list-variables?
As for -symbol-info-symbol, I can't find anything close to that...

CDI/GDB uses the binary parser associated with the project to retrieve the list of global variables. The list of variables returned by
"info variables" command can be very long and we had concerns that it would affect the performance.

According gdb documentation 'symbol-list-variables' is supposed to be an MI equivalent of 'info variables' but it is not implemented yet.
