Is it possible to get any of the following information during the KBE post install portion:

Is a scripted install being deployed, or an image?
Which scripted install/image?
Last modified date/time on the scripted install/deployment?

I hoping to use this information to populate a .reg file that would later be imported for use as a custom inventory item in the K1000.

Since there's nothing identifiable about the image or script on the machine after the deployment, I believe you'd need to write these things as postinstall tasks manually. I generally write them to the registry as you planned to collect actually.

Ok, I was hoping to not have to write a separate task for each deployment. For an image I should be able to put it into the registry prior to running sysprep on it, but we will be using scripted installs most of the time to take advantage of the driver share on the K2000.

Scripted installs and system images use postinstall tasks the same way; so no reason you can't use them here that I can see.
A BAT script postinstall task like the following would leave me a clue that this is the accounting department script/image; changing it to be what you needed to write of course.
