sure, but if other levels have walls it doesn't make those levels without
walls "inside", does it?

no, I would put it like this: the ground floor is still part of the
building, but it is outside. Like a balcony for example. Would you say a
balcony is "inside"?

is this a room with some kind of delimiting feature? I would not say it is
not part of the building, I would only say the space that is not enclosed
by walls (including windows, glass facades, etc.) is not "indoor".
