Honestly, I don't see an issue to replace $prefix in these examples.

These examples seem artificial. The paths are not user provided: they are hardcoded paths from the sysconfig module:

    if opts.ignore_dir:
        _prefix = sysconfig.get_path("stdlib")
        _exec_prefix = sysconfig.get_path("platstdlib")

I'm not even sure if it's worth it to fix this issue, it's unclear to me how you could get r"$prefixvar/subdir" from sysconfig.get_path("stdlib").
