Agreed; I think a pending patch from Marco already does this, and I'm
going to try to get to that soon.

No, innreport_inn.pm is a Perl module used by innreport and is essentially
part of the innreport implementation. Changing it is similar to changing
the source code of INN; it's not user-editable and isn't a configuration
file. I think it belongs in lib.
(Ideally it should be a real Perl module and be installed into the
site_perl tree, but that's more work than is likely to be done any time

The innshellvar* files are the encoding of local system dependencies and
autoconf-probed information; they're not user-editable in the common case
and don't set options, only record information about the system. I don't
think they're configuration files either.
