When played as major or Dom they seem to fit much better in the minor key than in the corresponding major key even though they still contain non diatonic notes? Ex. Key of (D-) G,G7, A,A7, all sound pretty good in D- progressions; but don't sound nearly as good in F progressions.

In F, they become 'majorized' ii and iii chords, which are less common and have a weaker role in the major key. They tend to sound like V chords of an imminent key change.
That's all I can think of. Anyone else?

In the relative minor key of D minor, however, those notes do belong. They are part of the D melodic minor scale (D E F G A B C# D)
