I believe (on debian/ubuntu) that you can turn off generation of such
entries by setting variables in /etc/default/grub:


Not sure which is which... etc. I have set both in mine & it just works.

But this is no longer relevant where I'm concerned:

As to pretty much all your other questions, the way I have addressed
them was getting rid of the menu generation rigmarole in /etc/grub.d/
and just editing /boot/grub/grub.cfg to suit my needs so I can *see*
what I am doing.¹

Once I made that decision *all* grub-related problems disappeared.


¹ I used the ‘recommended’ tactics once to generate a grub.cfg
  ‘template’. After that, just make sure debian/ubuntu kernel upgrades,
  etc. do not generate a new grub.cfg behind your back and overwrite
  your custom menu. Back up that file before editing so you always have
  something to fall back on..!
