What do you mean by full definition? you want to full action conf file?
I do put my bantime in the jail but I also put it in my ipset (IIRC fail2ban did not support the length i required)
I do, however, find the hierarchical way parameters can be defined can be confuling and very hard to follow. One thing odd in your log is that an one end of one error line you have a ` and at the other end a '.
The backtick / single quote seems to be from the sh error output (seen it many times in different bash errors)
