As far as I know Haddock markup is interpreted withing @-blocks.  So if
you write @`foo`@ it will get linked, but if you just write @foo@ it
should not be linked.  If you write @\`foo`@ it should again not be
linked.  It may be awkward at times, but I think you should be able to
achieve what you want, no?

Please give a self-contained minimal example that illustrates your
issue, if this still does not help.
