Were they shot on an actual fully built set? On location? Was everything a backdrop that Madonna was standing in front of?

cant answer all your questions about where they were specifically shot, but the first three are from the album shoot in April 2000 in Los Angeles.  she was pregnant with Rocco at the time.  the latter three were shot sometime after she had Rocco, most likely at the time of the Don't Tell Me video shoot since he was the director.

For the artwork for Music, Madonna wore a blue shirt, jeans, red boots and a blue cowboy hat. In it, she faces the camera, while in the background a car and a gas station are seen. The country was a constant theme throughout the design, as the album's title, which was a logo that simulated a buckle, showing the silhouette of a cowboy while riding a horse and a yellow background; the bright colors give a sharp contrast compared to the photograph.[24] Photo sessions were conducted by Jean Baptiste Mondino, who had worked previously with the singer on photoshoots and music videos.[25] According to Fouz-Hernández, the artwork is "a complete celebration to the field" western United States.[26] He also added that it "is camp, notably Madonna's combination of Western clothing with expensive shoes and bright red high heels. In particular, there is a clear evocation of Judy Garland – a major gay icon – in the artwork".[27] The art direction and design for the album were done by Kevin Reagan.[28]

The pictures were shot in Los Angeles, California, in April 2000. In an interview with CNN's Style with Elsa Klensch, Mondino said that he was the one who had the idea of the western themes for the album, and also stated: "[Madonna] wasn't sure at first, but I told her that if she didn't like it I won't charge her. But she loved the final result!".[29] Madonna also decided to use her new country style during her public appearances for Music's promotion; including jeans, shirts and cowboy hats.[30] On her next tour in 2001, Madonna included a segment based entirely on this ambient.[31] Meanwhile, Fouz-Hernández explained that "in this appearance Madonna may be parodying and criticizing Country, which symbolizes among other things, the supremacy of the white man, the ambition of the European pioneers and the American Dream. However, we do not realize that while recognizing the importance that the country has in American popular culture, and joins a long list of artists who have done this previously.[32] Despite this, the cowgirl image of Madonna has become one of her most recognized reinventions.[33][34]
