Which modules are these?  There are .lyx files in the distribution, but 
there shouldn't be .lyx "code" in the modules themselves as far as I know.

The .lyx files in the directories are there for documentation.  And yes, 
Lyx is a standard for SciPy Documentation.

The reason is that there are LyX editors that make it easier to write 
LyX files then pure LaTeX.  These viewers are available for popular 
platforms.

See http://www.lyx.org.
