In Graham McCann's Still Open All Hours book of 2014, the caption for the photo of Barker, Jason and Baron opposite page 180 claims it's a location shot. I think it looks more like the painted backdrop that was used in the studio...?

Very well spotted, John! That is definitely a painted backdrop. Not completely unknown for them to be used on location to hide/disguise something, but very likely a misattributed photo indeed.

Has anyone else noticed a handful of errors in the Rab C. Nesbitt section of Gregor Fisher's memoir?

I actually laughed out loud at that. It'd fool many a casual viewer though.
