This logic is implemented in the VisitType method, which mostly gets called by visitors to c++ nodes like VisitTemplateParameterList, but we have disabled the use of fixed point types in c++. VisitType does get called in VisitFunctionDecl but the function exits early since we are not reading c++ (line lib/Index/USRGeneration.cpp:238).

If the conclusion is to only allow these types for C, then you could punt on this by setting IgnoreResult so USR generation fails. As you say USRs only include type information in C++.
I think nothing parses them except humans, and using a prefix character is probably better than eating 24 single characters. But one prefix character + one trailing character might be less surprising.
