Default PTR records master file

although in several posts it is mentioned that your ISP manages the PTR records for your IP, ISPConfig does generate a reverse zone file for bind.

However the format is

  GNU nano 1.3.12                          File: reverse_zone.in-addr.arpa.master

$TTL        86400
@               IN      SOA     {SERVER_BIND_NS1_DEFAULT}. hostmaster.{SERVER_DOMAIN}. (
                                {SERIAL}       ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
                                28800   ; Refresh
                                7200    ; Retry
                                604800  ; Expire
                                86400)  ; Minimum TTL
                        NS      {SERVER_BIND_NS1_DEFAULT}.
                        NS      {SERVER_BIND_NS2_DEFAULT}.
<!-- BEGIN DYNAMIC BLOCK: reverse_records -->
{IP_ENDE}       PTR     {DNS_SOA}.
<!-- END DYNAMIC BLOCK: reverse_records -->
in order to correctly resolve, my ISP recommended to add IN like

{IP_ENDE}     IN       PTR     {DNS_SOA}.
would that make sense?

I guess you mix up the domain PTR records and the IP reverse records. The IP reverse records can only managed by your ISP because you are normally not authoritive for a IP, the domain PTR records where managed by ISPConfig automatically.
