My particular Bebop 1 DID have a significant Light/Shadow issue. There is some talk that this only occurs with SOME Bebops; but mine was significantly improved by just a roughly cut piece of charcoal gray packing foam I had lying around the house.
I just bought a second refurbished Bebop, so I can do a side-by-side comparison.

Do these mods really make a difference? I haven't noticed my bebop jumping up and down in and out of sunlight/shadows. Seems simple enough to do but is it really worth it?

I've got the Red (and presumed least problematic) Bebop 1; and found that blackening the inside of the nose did very little.
The Foam Fix DID work, and worked very well! So far, I haven't bothered with tape, as the inside of the nose piece seems to do a fine job of both compressing and holding the foam in place.
The snug fit of the nose is the reason I have NOT had luck with the 3D printed barometer fix. Exterior dimension seems to be too much; and rather than try to trim away either nose or plastic part, I went back to my bit of foam. Simplest solution turns out to be the best one.
Now if I can only identify why Bebop went off course during a FlightPlan route (pre-foam fix), suddenly veered left, dropped 30m, and crashed into the street... I'll be less nervous sending the little guy out for a spin.

I have designed and made baro protection on 3d printer. It is shown in attached pictures.
If someone is interested, please let me know

I did the barometer mod and It works great. No more climbing up and diving down when going in and out of shade and sunlight.

Apparently there is a 3D printed version for sale on ebay!

... As for the various "limits" of 8m / 15m they are all heresay, no real facts...
BS! The values are in the .cfg files...
