What is {arch}/,,inode-sigs good for in a cacherev anwyay? The untarred tarball will have the files in different inodes anyway, so shouldn't rather {arch}/,,inode-sigs not be present at all in the cacherev?

if one issues
$ tla cacherev <a revision identifier in a mirror>
the generated tarball contains a {arch}/,,inode-sigs directory with entries for the mirror registered name, not the mirrors canonical name. Folk unpacking the tarball will presumably be doing so to build the revision under the canonical name, so it should be used.

Additionally, cacherev could use a line of text such as "To cache a revision into an already mirrored archive, supply cacherev with the mirror location as part of the version specification. Cacherev understands mirrors and will generate an appropriate cached revision." in the help.
