Thanks, this is definitely worth fixing.

I think I'd just render them monospace everywhere. We are very
inconsistent about which form of quotes we use in the documentation (I
think because most of the developers read the source directly and not
the rendered asciidoc). And then we don't have to worry about the "$$"
construct (and IMHO it makes the source much more readable, and marking
the address as a literal looks good in the output, too).
