You are correct, the innostore backend is not using the parameters passed to
it by multi_backend:

Rather than modifying the file you can configure the default
innostore settings in your Riak app.config file:
{riak_core, [...riak_core settings...]},
{riak_kv, [...riak_kv settings...]},
{innostore, [{buffer_pool_size, 8589934592}, ...other settings...]}
