We had a simple idea to have 3 different elements drawn in a complex profile. But the thing is we need to keep it as different elements on IFC side. Is there any way to break apart Complex Profile and don't have it as IfcBuildingElementPart but for example IfcWall or IfcColumn?

For now we just do it as 3 different profiles but it will be much easier to model with one profile breaking apart during export.
There are some (minor) improvements with IFC export for composite elements. I think it is at least possible to show the correct quantities for all 'layers' that are exported.

But from what it sounds like you are trying to achieve, I'm afraid you can't classify parts of a composite / complex profile. (that I know!)
